Coming Soon: Solarize Loudoun (October through November)

We’ve taken the confusion out of going solar by vetting the best Virginia installers to bring you top of the line equipment packages with great warranties.

Solar power for homes and buisnesses is easier and more affordable thanks to Solarize NOVA, a grassroots, community-based outreach initiative sponsored by the Northern Virginia Regional Commission (NVRC) and the Local Energy Alliance Program (LEAP).  Solarize NOVA is a one-stop-shop for community members to learn more about solar power options for their homes and businesses, and facilitate the installation and financing of their own project. Through bulk purchasing and free solar site assessments, Solarize NOVA puts solar within reach.

The program was a success in Leesburg and Loudoun County in the fall of 2014, Falls Church, Vienna and Herndon in the spring of 2015, and again in Alexandria and Dumfries in the fall of 2015.  A total of 2,455 homeowners and businesses signed up for Solarize with 582 homeowners taking advantage of our FREE Home Energy Check Up.

As of August 2016, 83 contracts totaling 647 kW of electricity and valued at over $2.2 million have been signed.

We are excited to bring this popular community solar model to Northern Virginia once again in 2016. Fill out the simple form and Get Started today!
