Solar is contagious. No, really! There’s a new study to prove it! As you can read in this article from the Washington Post, it turns out that having neighbors with solar is a stronger influence on other homes going solar than almost any other factor, even income level.

And if solar is contagious, we’re well on our way to an epidemic here in the Upper Valley.

Our recent Solarize Upper Valley Round Two launch events drew nearly 600 attendees and generated 350 site visit requests in the first week. It’s going to be a busy season for the partner installers in our five Solarize communities!
