Using the Solarize Model in Your Community

Communities across the country are getting together to make solar energy affordable for as many of their residents as possible. One of the most successful models is "Solarize". First developed in Portland, Oregon in 2010 with support from the U.S. Department of Energy's (DOE) Solar America Communities program, the program enrolled more than 300 participants in its first 6 months. According to the 2012 Solarize Handbook, "After three years of Solarize campaigns, Portland has added over 1.7 MW of distributed photovoltaics (PV) and established a strong, steady solar installation economy."

Since then, the Solarize model has been used by communities across the country to make solar power - both electricity (PV) and solar hot water - more affordable and accessible to thousands of people.
