Community members in Harrisonburg, VA are going solar together and getting a discount! This program is part of a grass roots effort in the U S to increase the use of solar to produce energy and to lower installation and equipment costs through a bulk purchase process.
Following our initial meeting on June 2, we already have over 40 individuals who have indicated interest in participating. Our effort is not limited to Harrisonburg City residents; we are hoping to include folks in nearby counties, cities, and towns.
Solarize Harrisonburg Officially Launches!
We formally launched Solarize Harrisonburg on Monday, July 28! Around 100 persons attended, asked many questions and got good answers from the Community Power Network representatives Anya Schoolman, Emily Stiever, and Aaron Sutch, our partners. We are moving forward! CPN will soon develop and release a Request for Proposal (RFP) for interested solar installers to respond with their bids. We hope to begin installations this fall! Solarize Harrisonburg is happening and you can sign up below!
How does a Solarize group work?
By going solar as a group, members will save 30% off the cost of a solar system. They’ll also have the support of the group throughout the process instead of having to go it alone.
