Based on commitments from homeowners to add new renewable energy systems to their properties, the more residents and business owners who contract for solar installations through the Solarize program, the more savings accrue for all participants.

Once these systems are fully installed and operational, more than 1.47 million lbs. of carbon emissions will be avoided annually in Oklahoma City. This is the equivalent of 250 full size pickup trucks worth of greenhouse emissions taken out of the air.
