Local Solarize Cobb Initiative Achieves A New Tier in Lowering the Cost of Solar Energy to Cobb Residents and Businesses

MARIETTA — Solarize Cobb, a community-based solar advocacy campaign, is among the hosts of an informative public session, “Making Sense of Rooftop Solar in 2024,” set for Monday, Feb. 26.

Expert speakers will cover practical implications of current Georgia solar policies for homeowners, business owners and non-profits interested in becoming more resilient and pursuing lower energy bills through sustainable solar energy.

Speakers for this event include:
  • Jennette Gayer, Executive Director of Environment Georgia
  • Russell Seifert, CEO of Creative Solar USA
  • Don Moreland, Founder, SolarCrowdsource
  • Kaveh Kamooneh, COO of Better Tomorrow Solar
These experts will highlight the practical implications of current Georgia solar policies for homeowners, business owners, non-profits, and government organizations, including:

  • State of the art in solar: latest trends, data, technologies and analyses
  • Local policy landscape: matters now before the Georgia General Assembly and Georgia Public Service Commission
  • Federal programs and initiatives: the latest in the Inflation Reduction Act, Greenhouse Gas Reduction Fund and Energy Efficiency Block Community Grant
The hybrid session will be held at Rich Hart Global Studios, 2030 Powers Ferry Road, Suite 270, Building 200, Atlanta beginning at 12 p.m.

In-person attendance is welcome as is virtual attendance. More information is available by visiting under “Campaign Events” or by registering in advance here.

Other host organizations for the session include the Georgia Solar Energy Association as well as those convening Solarize Cobb: My Green Earth, Georgia Interfaith Power & Light, Environment Georgia, Sierra Club Georgia Chapter - Centennial Group in NW Georgia, and Solar Crowdsource.

The latter coalition of Cobb-based organizations launched Solarize Cobb in 2023 to help make solar energy and battery storage more affordable for homeowners, businesses and nonprofits through a unique bulk-purchasing concept available now to Cobb property owners.

The more who participate in group purchasing, the more costs are reduced for every property owner who contracts for a system. The Cobb campaign recently reached Tier 2 pricing – group savings of $2.75/watt. This means that for an average solar energy system in Cobb County (7kW), as much as $700 in lower pricing is available.

Nearly 120 local residents and business owners have already signed up to learn more about how Solarize Cobb works. At its core, Solarize Cobb is a community-based group-purchasing program for solar energy, battery storage and other technologies to mitigate rising utility costs and support energy independence.

Everyone who signs a contract through the campaign will receive a rebate for any future additional pricing tiers achieved.

Interested Cobb residents may go to to learn more and sign up for a no-cost, no-obligation evaluation for your home or business. Solarize Cobb is open for a limited time to all property owners in Cobb County and follows a campaign model that has been successful in more than 300 other communities across the U.S. 

The deadline for residents to enroll for free is fast approaching – March 1. Following that, the deadline to make a final contract decision is April 30. All solar and battery installations are expected to be completed by Dec. 31, 2024.
