VA SUN is a citizens network of solar supporters in Virginia and supports a community listserve open to any individual or business interested in supporting solar in the state.

The listserve includes people who have gone solar, want to go solar, and people who work on solar installations or solar policy. It is not a place for polemical arguments nor advertising, but a place for practical advice on how to go solar. It's also a way to keep track of local developments around solar, including pending laws, incentives, and changes in policy.
