Posted by: Don Moreland

Solarize Decatur-DeKalb officially launched, virtual site visits are underway, and the first contract is in the books!

On April 30th, over 70 people joined Decatur's Mayor Garrett and campaign organizers to kick-off the campaign in a socially distant way that is a sign of the times these days - a Zoom webinar. While not the same as a traditional Solarize launch event at a community center with fancy signage and crisp brochures, the webinar was a great success leading to almost 50 of your local friends and family signing up so far.
