JABA

Friday, May 23rd 2014 - 12:00 am

Volunteers are hte heart of JABA. They work with children in the local schools; deliver meals to the homebound and bring music and art into JABA’s Adult Care Centers. And, its volunteers who help make JABA’s resale boutique a shopping treasure, plus so much more. But even JABA’s dedicated volunteers need a break and come summer up to 30 percent leave for vacations and travel. This leaves many vital programs short handed
If you’ve thought about volunteering, JABA could sure use your help. To learn more about JABA’s volunteer opportunities during the summer or throughout the year, please contact Leanne Probst at 817-5272 or visit jabacares.org

Solarize Charlottesville

Tuesday, July 1st 2014 - All Day

Solar power for homes will be easier and more affordable than ever July through September 2014 thanks to Solarize Charlottesville, a grassroots, community-based outreach initiative sponsored by the nonprofit Local Energy Alliance Program (LEAP) in partnership with the City of Charlottesville, Albemarle County, and the UVA Community Credit Union.  Solarize Charlottesville is a one-stop-shop for community members to learn more about solar power options for their homes and facilitate the installation and financing of their own project. Through bulk purchasing and free solar site assessments, Solarize Charlottesville puts solar within reach.

The foundation of this program is community participation. When a community decides to rally behind solar, local installers are able to lower their prices. This is a result of bulk purchasing, offset marketing expenses, reduced travel expenses, and the guarantee that solar installation crews will be kept busy. In addition to the reduced price created by Solarize Charlottesville’s economies of scale, LEAP will help participants access a 30% federal tax credit, affordable financing (as low as 0%), and navigate the Solar Renewable Energy Credit (SREC) market.

Whether considering solar for increased energy independence, hedging against increased electric utility prices, or cutting carbon emissions, Solarize Charlottesville will be a great place to learn about all the benefits of going solar. For more information view our website: www.solarizecville.org or give us a call at 434-227-4666

*Note, website currently under construction until event launch.
