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.
Roswell, GA — The coalition managing Solarize Roswell announced today the addition of Creative Solar USA as the new installation partner for the Solarize Roswell campaign.
Creative Solar USA is a turn-key solar power and energy storage installer based in Kennesaw, GA. Creative Solar works to provide clients with energy management systems that meet or exceed their generation and financial goals.
Solarize programs help communities save on the cost of solar energy and battery storage by leveraging the power of bulk purchasing. During the Solarize Roswell campaign, businesses, homeowners, and non-profits will be encouraged to undergo a free solar evaluation to determine if they would like to convert to solar energy. Pricing is based on a tiered system; more participation helps to bring the price down for everyone.
Solar Crowdsource is pleased to welcome Clean Energy Credit Union as an affordable finance option for Solarize campaign participants.
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!
