Solarize Your Neighborhood

What IS a "solarize" event??
 
Let's explain by asking .. are you ready to generate some or all of the electricity you need right at home? Are you ready to go solar, but not sure where to start? Are you ready to tap that untapped local energy resource – the SUN?
 
Join the North Texas Renewable Energy Group and Plano Solar Advocates to discuss the "Solarize" concept. "Solarize" is a group bulk-purchase process that can help neighborhoods and cities install rooftop solar photovoltaics at reduced cost. Come join us (and bring your neighbor!) to learn how you can start a Solarize program in your neighborhood! The goal of the meeting will be to begin creating a network of people across the DFW area that are interested in launching projects in their own communities.
 
Topics for discussion: Program setup. Outreach and Education. Selecting a Solar Company. Install Solar!
 
Watch a short (3 minute) video from the U.S. Department of Energy "SunShot Initiative" program describing the Solarize process.
