Solarize Hudson Valley is a regional campaign to make it easier and more affordable for households and small businesses to go solar. Combining the power of community with a smart group purchasing strategy, Solarize helps everyone learn about solar technology, benefits, choices and financing options – together. Working with highly qualified, pre-selected installation firms and community outreach volunteers, Solarize offers a progressive, tiered pricing structure that saves more money for every participant as more people step up. It’s sound marketing – good community organizing – endlessly creative and fun.
In Connecticut and Massachusetts, Solarize campaigns have rolled out to hundreds of communities, led by partnerships between state agencies and nonprofits, reaching thousands of households and installing over 8 megawatts of solar power. More exciting, communities that participate in Solarize campaigns stay educated and involved after the campaigns wrap up.
Solarize Hudson Valley is a three-year program of Sustainable Hudson Valley and Catskill Mountainkeeper, part of the Renewable New York movement to expand clean energy now.
We begin in May 2015 with a pilot in the City of Kingston, then scale up regionally with 4 – 8 partner communities from July 1 – Nov. 15.
