Athens, GA—Solarize Athens is back to give the residents of Athens-Clarke County and adjacent communities another chance to leverage the power of group purchasing to save on the cost of solar energy. The first Solarize Athens program in 2016 was a huge success with 68 installations, adding 430kW of new solar capacity, and avoiding over 840,000 lbs of CO2 emissions.
FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
About 75 Dunwoody and Sandy Springs residents packed the Dunwoody Nature Center to hear from community leaders and solar experts about the program. Community leaders Robert Wittenstein (Dunwoody Homeowners Association), Jason Metzger (Dunwoody Sustainability Committee), and Tina Wilkinson (UMC Earthkeepers) explained why they are bringing a Solarize program to Dunwoody while representatives from Hannah Energy talked about the benefits of solar and showed off some of the solar components selected for the program, including the Tesla Powerwall 2.
