Homeowners across California are taking advantage of the advances in solar panel technology. With the great savings and affordable installation costs, solar is one of the most appealing ways for residents to cut back on their energy usage and spending. That is why many companies, small businesses, and even religious organizations are considering going solar as well.
In fact, many synagogues have taken advantage of solar savings already. Switching to solar can be a mitzvah and an act of tzedakah – an obligation to act for social good. Because solar energy is best for the environment and the community at large, it is a true expression of Jewish values. Switching to solar can additionally allow for extra savings to be put toward charitable causes.
What to Consider When Switching to Solar
- Stay local – Opt to work with a company you can get to know and trust to work on your project. That means keeping it local and investing back into your own community.

- Stick with a fair labor standards manufacturer – Solar panel manufacturing can vary. It is important to find a manufacturer that you can have peace of mind about providing solar panels for your synagogue. Semper Solaris uses SunPower, a US-based solar panel manufacturer dedicated to environmental responsibility and sustainability.
- Keep your project cost effective – Switching to solar can quickly become a bigger-than-needed expense. Strategically laying out your installation options protects your investment.
