In Syracuse, New York Interfaith Power & Light is a part of a grassroots coalition of nonprofits and local residents who are organizing a program called Solarize Syracuse. We are on a mission to bust the prevalent myths about solar energy and help make solar simpler and more affordable for all.
Solarize Syracuse is encouraging residents, businesses and houses of worship in “go solar” and get as many people in the region to participate in the process as possible, driving down costs.
After a rigorous process, the group chose a solar installer who has the capability to handle numerous solar installations within a short timeframe. Having an installer already chosen simplifies the process for many people.
As of today, 129 people have already signed up to see if their property is suitable for solar!
In the past few years, successful Solarize campaigns have spread from Oregon to Massachusetts to New York, Solarize campaigns have the power to double the amount of installed solar in their communities and invigorate the local solar market. If you are interested in replicating this project in your community, or if you just want more information, call Janna Stieg Watkins at (315) 256-0078.
