Giving Back 2023

Giving Back 2023

2023 was a big year for Sun Path Electric, both in terms of expanding our offerings to the community and giving back to foster resiliency and promote policies that combat climate change. We have always been a mission-driven company and remain committed to fighting climate change through our business and business practices.

Each year we give to several local, national, and international non-profits that are working towards creating a healthy planet and thriving communities by tackling some aspect of climate change.

2023 Giving Summary:

We made a donation for each solar system installed to support educating women in developing countries to install solar panels in their communities through the Barefoot College's Solar Mamas program. This effort supports both their financial and energy independence.



This year we sponsored a table at the 20th Anniversary gala for Climate Solutions in support of their commitment to spearheading inclusive, science-based, and replicable state-level solutions to the climate crisis. 



We donated $1000 to launch the grassroots advocacy effort, Stand Up for Solar, as well as served on the Board of Directions and chaired the Outreach Committee for the
Washington Solar Energy Industries Association.


In addition to working with the local association and supporting women internationally, we also provided corporate donations for national advocacy efforts on climate change to the Environmental Defense Fund, Sierra Club, and Union of Concerned Scientists

Sun Path Electric - Staff Profile - Sonja Ling

Sun Path Electric - Staff Profile - Sonja Ling

As a mom working in the renewable energy sector, I believe we all need to do our part to immediately reduce our carbon footprint. At Sun Path Electric, I’m in charge of permitting and I work with homeowners who want to go solar. 

I first met the Sun Path team through advocacy work when I was a young mother with Cool Moms, a non-profit started by Sun Path President, Kristy Royce. My dedication to working in the renewable sector began more than twenty years ago when I was a graduate student researching the off-grid solar PV market for Tibetan herders in Qinghai Province, China. Over the following two decades I’ve spent several years with my family living in southwest China, where solar power has been widely used for years to heat water. My interest in China extends beyond solar, however: I’ve also been involved in developing Chinese women’s leadership by promoting the collective giving model of philanthropy.

In my spare time I love to hike with my family on the Olympic Peninsula. My son has also started designing solar projects and my daughter plays the cello.
