About SunShare

Our Story

Imagine throwing a party and you can only invite 30% of your friends! That’s how SunShare founder, David Amster-Olszewski felt when he learned for every person who has purchased solar panels for their homes, 7 more have been told they aren’t good candidates. David wanted anyone to be able to reap the benefits of solar and join the party!

That’s how SunShare got started back in 2011 in Colorado as the nation’s first community solar company. Since, SunShare has become a proven, national leader and innovator in community solar. SunShare has worked hard to build our leadership position in the solar industry by delivering on an efficient and scalable community solar project development and subscriber servicing model. 

Our mission is to serve residential, commercial, and municipal customers by building community solar gardens to beckon a future that is clean, simple, and kind – one where anyone can make a positive impact.
