- Q & A
SOLARIZE UPPER VALLEY is a new initiative from Vital Communities that will team up local communities with solar photovoltaic (PV) installers to make residential-scale solar energy more accessible and affordable for residents in your town.
Vital Communities will select up to four communities to partner with us on the first phase of Solarize Upper Valley, which will include a 15-week community outreach campaign between March and June 2014. Outreach efforts allow installers to pass on significant discounts to residents, avoiding their added costs of customer acquisition. As more people sign up in your community, our tiered pricing structure means that solar PV installation prices continue to drop for everyone!
