Georgia Solarize Programs May be the Best Deal on Solar for a While

Posted by: Don Moreland

Solar costs are going up but Solarize group purchase pricing is NOT

There are plenty of articles out there confirming what we are already seeing around the solar industry -- the cost of solar is going up. Supply chain constraints and increasing raw materials costs are impacting many sectors of the economy -- and solar is no exception.

While the cost of solar is going up, Solarize Atlanta 2.0 and Solarize Savannah pricing is not. One of the features of a Solarize program is predetermined pricing that participants can count on when making decisions. When Creative Solar USA won the bid to become the exclusive installation partner for both campaigns this spring, they secured the necessary equipment at set prices for the duration of the campaign. So even though costs are going up all around us, the Solarize low group purchase pricing has remained the same and will do so until the end of the contract deadline on December 31st
