About Us

Solarize NOVA began in 2014 as a community-based outreach initiative to bring solar power to people in their homes and businesses throughout Northern Virginia through our solarize campaigns. Solarize NOVA is sponsored by the Northern Virginia Regional Commission (NVRC), managed by the Local Energy Alliance Program (LEAP), and works in partnership with local governments and other supporters.
