Final Month for Residents to Seek Group-Buying Savings on Solar Energy and Battery Storage

With a Dec. 31 deadline ahead to sign up for a free solar energy assessment, Solarize the Triangle has reached another lower-cost tier in its discount price offering to property owners in the Region.
The community-based group-buying program – developed by 11 local governments in the Triangle – has already enrolled 1,070 property owners seeking proposals for solar-energy systems.
To date, 546 kW of renewable solar power – more than half a megawatt – has been purchased through the program, which launched in August and has achieved 59 homeowner contracts to date.

Once these installations are completed, over 1 million per year in pounds of CO2 will have been avoided in the Region. This is the equivalent of 100 gasoline-powered passenger vehicles driven for one year.
