Blue Horizons Project Leading Community Solarize Campaign Coming This Spring
Our Blue Horizons Project program is leading this spring's rollout of the long-awaited Asheville-Buncombe Solarize campaign. This group-purchasing program has empowered cities and counties nationwide to make solar more affordable for everyday people.
Solarize campaigns harness the power of the crowd to save some major green while residences and businesses go green; the more community members that participate, the greater the savings!
As part of the campaign, organizers will seek competitive bids from the local solar community to ensure best-in-class materials are installed by qualified solar professionals for the lowest price.
Based on community feedback, the campaign will prioritize a deeply discounted option for low- to moderate-income households, as well as an educational component to provide workforce development in renewable-energy technologies. The request for proposals from solar companies will be issued Feb. 1, and the campaign will officially begin recruiting participants in April!
Stay tuned to our February newsletter for updates on this process!
