Solarize Philly is Gaining Momentum
<a href="http://www.solarinyourcommunity.org/en/custom/teams/view/2664">Solarize Philly</a> is the first citywide solarize initiative in Philadelphia. A Solarize campaign allows a group of homeowners to install solar together at a reduced price. Led by the <a href="http://www.philaenergy.org/programs-initiatives/solarize-philly/">Philadelphia Energy Authority</a>, the team’s goal is to add 2.5 MW of PV on 500 homes in the city. As of July, more than 1,500 households have expressed interest in participating and 11 contracts have been signed. Three solar installation companies have been selected and solar equipment manufacturers and distributors have submitted proposals that will help further drive down costs.
