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.

Overall, our Solarize campaigns have achieved 186 solar power system installations, totaling 1.4 MW of capacity, and valued at over $4.5 million. Plus, we’ve performed home energy check-ups at more than 330 homes. In 2017, Solarize NOVA placed first in the Residential program category from the Virginia Energy Efficiency Council (VAEEC).

So far, our Solarize campaigns have reached the following localities in Northern Virginia:

  • City of Alexandria
  • City of Fairfax
  • City of Falls Church
  • Fairfax County
  • Loudoun County
  • Piedmont Environmental Council
  • Reston
