TURLOCK, Calif., Dec. 22, 2020 /PRNewswire/ -- Solar Energy Partners (SEP), one of California's highest rated and fastest growing solar energy brokerages, today announced that they have officially partnered with The Salvation Army, the nation's largest social-services organization, through their "Red Kettle" & "Angel Tree" programs to aid those in need. With a need to help 155% more people than usual this season, The Salvation Army supports homeless shelters, grocery assistance, and Bill-pay assistance - helping struggling households pay their utility bills.

According to the Solar Energy Industries Association (SEIA), solar companies are in a prime position to help rebuild the American economy quickly and more robustly than ever. Solar Energy Partners (SEP) offer homeowners the ability to switch their main power provider to solar energy at rates generally cheaper than what most electrical utilities can provide. With so many impacted by the Coronavirus COVID 19 Pandemic, there has never been a greater necessity for economic relief. The Salvation Army's Red Kettle program could see up to a 50% decrease in funds this year due to more online shopping, unemployment rates and store closures. SEP is stepping up to offer options so their clients can donate cash through Red Kettle. Customers will also have the option to donate a toy via Amazon or Walmart which benefits the Angel Tree Program.
