The year 2020 was metamorphic not only for us or the renewable energy sector but also the entire world. The pandemic affected various industries, and the renewable energy sector is no different. Despite the US Energy Information Administration’s prediction that electricity consumption would likely fall by 3.9% year-on-year in 2020, SunContract has emerged stronger than ever. In 2020, we achieved record sales and revenue in electricity sales and energy self-sufficiency products.

Since our birth in 2016, we have prioritized complete transparency with our existing and potential stakeholders and consumers, thereby enabling you to make sound and informed business and financial…

Dear SunLovers,

We’re very pleased to announce that together with our Slovenian partner SONCE energija and a consortium of partner companies, we have been selected for an R&D project — supported by EU grants amounting to €4,659,682 ($5.5 million USD) for research into how blockchain technology tools with science approaches and a multi-value service design can be used to boost Demand Response (DR) through increased community level consumer engagement.

What exactly is DR and why do we want to boost it?

Demand response in its most traditional form turns energy users into “virtual power plants” by adjusting their energy consumption during specific times to relieve stress on the grid. Instead of turning…


More than a revamped design

Dear SunLovers,

Last week we made an announcement regarding our new invoicing system which we have since rolled out.

The purpose of this article is to get our energy customers and community members more acquainted with this invoice, how it differs from the previous invoicing system and to loop you in on the…

Solar hybrid energy systems are systems that combine solar power from a photovoltaic source and store energy in battery systems for continuous operations. For high reliability, they can be combined with another power generating energy source. In the case of our client, the major source of energy is a solar power plant to produce electricity and a LiFePO4 battery for energy storage…

Up to 40% lower electricity prices

Dear SunLovers,

At SunContract, we are working alongside public officials to help reduce the impact of COVID-19 in our community by additionally helping small business owners and households to reduce their electricity bills.

With an unprecedented number of people staying home to prevent the spread of COVID-19, we believe people should be focused on keeping their families safe and not on what time of day they should do laundry or wash dishes in order to save on energy.
