Our Commitment to Sustainability
Since first opening its doors to San Diegans in 1934, Wheelhouse Credit Union takes great pride to now be San Diego’s #1 Solar Financing Lender. We work with over 100 installers to help homeowners significantly reduce their electric bill, increase the value of their home and help the environment.
Sustainability is rooted in our core values and we know that together we can significantly reduce our carbon footprint, lessen greenhouse gas emissions and decrease our dependence on fossil fuels.
Supporting San Diego's Journey To 100% Renewable Energy
The City of San Diego is the largest U.S city with a binding commitment to switch to 100% clean energy. We’re committed to supporting that effort through our community outreach, internal sustainability efforts and the products and services we offer our Members.
