You may be familiar with fellow Southern states and cities' Solarize programs, such as Solarize North Carolina or Solarize Tybee, but did you know that the Atlanta metro area hasn't—until now—had its own Georgia Solarize program? That's crazy, right? Solarize programs are growing in popularity throughout the U.S. as of late because everything about them is positive for both the individual and the community as a whole.
If you've heard the term "Solarize," but aren't quite sure what that means exactly, let us explain... It is essentially a community-based bulk-purchasing program, where your community goes in on a solar program together. Think of it like buying solar at wholesale prices—the more individuals who sign up to do so, the more everyone involved saves on the cost of solar installations. This is fantastic for people who want to go green (and save some green), but can't afford to do so by themselves. It's also, of course, good news for the environment.
So, how does Atlanta's first Solarize program work? Both local governments and the individual are able to participate in our intuitive program since we have developed an easy-to-use campaign website. The local government is able to create a campaign on SolarCrowdSource.com and then its community's individuals sign up to participate in the campaign. Everyone involved can continue to view the progress of the campaign on our website's campaign page for Solarize Georgia.
