sonnenCommunity – A clean and decentralised energy system

The sonnenCommunity is the largest energy community of its kind, including all sonnen customers. It offers its members to jointly shape a clean and decentralised energy system where the household becomes the centre of it.

Everybody can choose between several options how much he or she wants to engage in that common goal. Either by just signing an energy contract and getting clean energy from the sonnenCommunity, or to take all options such as: produce, store and share energy with other members, become part of the virtual power plant and help to stabilise the grids in a new way. Together with the sonnenCommunity’s EV subscription model, sonnenDrive enables a household to completely switch to clean energy.
