Solarize Decatur-DeKalb Kicks-off

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.

Tiered pricing explained

Posted by: Don Moreland

Residential Tiered Pricing (aggregate kW)

Residential pricing is determined by a tiered pricing structure. We use the power of bulk purchasing and economies of scale so the more homeowners that participate in the program, the lower the pricing will be for everyone. Here’s how it works: early adopters who go solar at Tier I pricing will pay $2.90/watt which is already a 10% savings for a comparable quality system outside this program. Then, throughout the course of the campaign, we aggregate the total amount of solar purchased and pass that savings down to the early adopters through a rebate paid at the end of the campaign. Tier VI pricing of $2.65/watt represents a 20% savings for everyone!
