The award-winning company donated a complete rooftop solar-electric generating system and the gift of electricity for decades to come to the family of the late Thomas Howell III of Oceanside, NY.

On September 6th, SUNation Cares started accepting nominations for a veteran in need to receive a free rooftop solar PV system. Many nominations were submitted and carefully evaluated based on their story as well as their eligibility to benefit from the system.
