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
