Solarize with Faith

Solarize with Faith at
Unitarian-Universalist Society: East

Sunday, March 26, 1:00-2:30pm

Hearty snacks will be provided as you learn about solar power, saving on your electric bill, and helping future generations and the environment.

Solarize with Faith is a new campaign of the Solarize Connecticut program of SmartPower. Past campaigns have focused on specific towns or cities. This is a new campaign that focuses on specific faith groups as a way to spread the word about the advantages of solar power and to offer special, discount pricing on quality solar systems. As in the town focused campaigns, faith community members pick a designated solar panel installer (based upon price, reputation, quality of work, and reviews of past installations, etc.), who offers a special price on installations in exchange for this initial contact with members and publicity work by members of the faith group. Several members of UUS:E, Unitarian Society of Hartford, and Inter-Religious Ecojustice Network have selected Sunlight Solar from New Haven to be the preselected installer, but members are encouraged to get second opinions from any of the other solar installers in CT—there are 100s—but be sure to make comparisons with equal quality components!

Who can participate? Members of UUS:E or any one attending this workshop and who owns a home in Connecticut. You can start now by simply going to SolarizeCT.com/faith and clicking on the button in the upper right corner. Fill out the form and select the “Solarize with Faith” option on the “Choose your Community” drop-down menu. You may receive a call from Dividend Solar about financing options, and you will learn more options at the workshop, and then Sunlight Solar will call you to schedule a site visit, which will access your home’s potential for solar panels. The campaign ends this summer and you must sign your contract by July 9, 2017 to get your discount rate.
