Solarize Chapel Hill Kickoff

 

Solarize Chapel Hill is a grassroots effort that makes it simple and affordable to go solar. We organize neighbors together for free solar assessments and group discounts.

This event will have solar experts to step you through each phase of the process: design and installation, connection to your utility, how to qualify for tax credits that cover up to 65% of the installation costs, and options for financing. Our panel will also answer all of your questions.

Everyone in Orange County is eligible to participate!

Solarize movement spreading to Chapel Hill, Hillsborough

From April to May, Solarize Carrboro helped more than 300 people find out if their home was right for solar. While many are still evaluating their proposals, more than 30 homes and businesses have already committed and are going solar. These solar rooftop power plants will generate enough electricity to replace FIVE MILLION pounds of coal, all while keeping our energy dollars local.

We are excited to announce that in September we are kicking off new Solarize campaigns for Chapel Hill, Hillsborough, and the rest of Orange County. If you are interested in helping organize, please join us on July 22 at 7pm at TRU bar + deli (114 Henderson St, Downtown Chapel Hill) for drinks, appetizers, merriment, and the opportunity to learn more about Solarize Chapel Hill. FIRST ROUND AND APPETIZERS ARE ON US! More info at www.solarizeChapelHill.org or let us know you are coming on facebook

Help Solarize your Community

Rooftop solar power provides clean, local and independent energy, all while saving money on your electricity bill. Solarize Chapel Hill is a non-profit, grassroots effort that makes it easy both to find out if solar is right for you, and to get solar on more roofs. 

By organizing neighbors together for group discounts, vetting solar installers, and helping you maximize the tax incentives, Solarize Chapel Hill makes it simple and affordable to go solar. More than 300 people participated in our recent program in Carrboro, so we know that many in Chapel Hill could become more energy independent and save money by adding solar. 

The biggest challenge is getting the word out about how affordable solar power has become. We are currently recruiting volunteer Neighborhood Solar Ambassadors to get the word out in neighborhoods around Chapel Hill. 

If you are interested in becoming a Neighborhood Solar Ambassador or just want to learn more, please join us at TRU in Chapel Hill (114 Henderson Street) on July 22 at 7pm for drinks, appetizers, merriment, and the opportunity to learn more about Solarize Chapel Hill. FIRST ROUND AND APPETIZERS ARE ON US! More info at www.solarizeChapelHill.org
