Nonprofit of the year
Sunwork Renewable Energy Projects, a Milpitas-based nonprofit working to make the adoption of solar power more economically practical, was named Nonprofit of the Year for Senate District 10 by State Sen. Bob Wieckowski.
Sunwork was recognized at a June 8 ceremony at the state Capitol, one of more than 100 honorees selected by state legislators to be honored on California Nonprofits Day.
“Climate change can seem overwhelming at times, but Sunwork’s mission clearly shows that each of us can do our part to increase access to solar power,” said Wieckowski.
Sunwork installs solar electricity systems in the Bay Area and the Central Coast to help customers with modest energy use make the switch to renewable power. It trains homeowners and volunteers to work on its projects to reduce expenses.
“We’ve now installed over 5 megawatts of solar capacity across more than 1,000 preschools, shelters, meal centers, places of worship, nonprofit organization headquarters and low-energy-use homes,” said Founder and Executive Director Reuben Veek. “It’s really rewarding to have this work and our team recognized as a 2022 Nonprofit of the Year.”
