Is Solar Right for You? Free Seminar

Tuesday, July 29th 2014 - 6:00 pm - 7:30 pm
at Berkmar Branch – UVA Community Credit Union

Learn about solar energy and new opportunities to turn solar into savings. We’ll show you how to “crunch the numbers” and review other non-financial factors to help determine if solar is right for you. We’ll provide information on local rebates and tax incentives. Plus, we cover the benefits of participating in the Solarize Charlottesville campaign (for City of Charlottesville and Albemarle County homeowners) which will offer bulk discount pricing on solar installation and reduced rate financing options. Presented by our area’s non-profit Local Energy Alliance Program (LEAP), solar installation experts, and the credit union. Hurry seating is limited.
