Sungevity TeamSungevity, the Official Solar Partner of UC Berkeley and first partnership secured through the University Partnership Program, recently supported the College of Environmental Design (CED) by serving as a platinum sponsor of the 2016 CED Soirée. During the event, Dean Jennifer Wolch encouraged CED faculty and alumni to be more sustainable by going solar with Sungevity, a benefit that would directly impact the college by providing a donation of $750 each time a member goes solar.

Additionally, Sungevity’s sponsorship will provide crucial support for the college and students, and will help maintain CED’s status as a top-rated institution. Continual solar donations will help foster a rich environment for students and faculty alike through their impact on educational technology and programs, such as lectures, exhibits, and international studios; research efforts of faculty; student financial support, that allows students to focus on their studies; and student advising and career services dedicated to helping students launch their professional careers.
