Last year 1,100 of your Charlottesville neighbors expressed interest in Solarize, shattering expectations.

To date, more than 100 have signed contracts to get our clean  energy future started with their roofs, underscoring the popularity of home solar as a clean energy choice. 


STREAMLINED:  Get started with an application including recent electric bills, then
receive a free site assessment and discounted Home Energy Check-Up.

AFFORDABLE:  By leveraging the collective buying power of you and your neighbors, we can offer discounted prices plus attractive financing options. City of Charlottesville residents are also eligible for a local City Solar Tax Credit and reduced interest rate financing with PowerSaver Home Loans.

SMART:  Electric rates are expected to rise for years to come, and the 30%
federal tax credit on solar installations is set to expire in 2016. Now is the time to go solar.

Solarize Charlottesville is a grassroots, community-based outreach initiative sponsored by the Local Energy Alliance Program (LEAP) in partnership with the City of Charlottesville, Albemarle County, and the UVA Community Credit Union.
