We Are Amicus Members

The Amicus Solar Cooperative was formed in 2011 by a group of solar energy providers with a revolutionary plan to better serve their customers.

Dedicated to the mission of offsetting carbon emissions and giving customers agency over their energy production, Amicus members are mission-driven, vision-aligned businesses, working to bring the solar revolution to energy consumers across the nation.  This invitation-only cooperative organization allows best-in-class solar installers to pool their purchasing power and share best practices.

Forty percent of Amicus members, including SunBug, are B Corporations.  Similar to Patagonia, one of the founders of the B-Corp movement, these Amicus members are a special kind of company, with a legal commitment to people, planet, profit that is verified by an outside audit.  Amicus Solar Cooperative is a B Corp itself, having won the distinction of achieving top 10% of all certified B Corps in the Impact Governance category.

Why does SunBug Solar’s membership in Amicus make a difference to our customers?

  • We purchase better equipment at lower prices, allowing us to provide better pricing to you without cutting any corners
  • Your system’s performance, quality and operational efficiency all improve based on Amicus members sharing best practices and technical knowledge
  • Amicus vets all suppliers, only choosing companies with good track records, so we can assure you that the equipment you’re investing in is the best out there 
  • It allows you to support in-state installers instead of larger, national companies, without sacrificing cost or quality

Today, Amicus has over 50 member-owners with office locations in 38 states, the District of Columbia, Puerto Rico, and Canada. The Cooperative is owned and democratically led by its member companies.
