PROVIDENCE, RI – On April 1, Mayor Jorge O. Elorza announced the launch of Solarize Providence, a three month effort to generate over 250 new solar projects in the city for an additional installed capacity of over 1.5 MW. Solarize Providence offers steeply discounted prices for Providence residents and business to install solar on their property. By going solar, residents and businesses can save money while helping the city achieve its sustainability goals.
“Through Solarize Providence, property owners can greatly reduce their utility bills to save money while producing clean, green and local electricity for their homes” said Mayor Elorza.
Solarize Providence is a partnership between the City of Providence’s Office of Sustainability, RI Office of Energy Resources, Commerce RI, and SmartPower, a non-profit marketing firm. Solarize Providence works by combining the power of group purchasing with federal and state incentives. As a result, program participants can install solar systems for roughly half the market rate.
Through a competitive bidding process, the Solarize Providence team selected SolarFlair as the City’s solar installer. SolarFlair is offering $0 down financing and $500 off the initial deposit for the first 10 homeowners to sign a contract. The program also offers unique community-wide benefits. Through the programs tiered pricing, the more people that sign contracts, the cheaper the prices become for everyone. In addition, if 400 kW of capacity is met by the end of the program, SolarFlair will donate a 5 kW system in Providence to a local non-profit. If 800 kW of contracted capacity is met by the end of the program, SolarFlair will donate a second 5 kW system.
To take advantage of this special offer, participants must have contracts signed by the June 26th deadline.
