As world leaders prepare to gather in Paris to discuss global sustainability goals, NRG Home Solar, one of the country’s leading residential solar companies, and Airbnb, the world’s leading community-driven hospitality company, announced a new partnership to increase the adoption of rooftop solar.

Through the collaboration, the companies will provide incentives to existing and new members of the Airbnb community to further increase the savings from going solar, and travel credits to encourage individuals to experience this more environmentally sustainable method of travel.

Studies have shown that home sharing, in comparison to staying in traditional accommodations, significantly reduces energy and water use, greenhouse gas emissions, and waste generation.

“This is the perfect example of two like-minded companies teaming up to make solar more accessible to a sustainability-minded community, creating a social solution to the societal problem of climate change,” said Steve McBee, CEO & President, NRG Home. “It’s a first for our industry and will allow us to help more Americans generate clean, renewable power and in turn, cut their electricity costs.”
