Solarize Orford - October 2014 - January 2015
Volunteers in Orford teamed up in the fall and winter of 2014-2015 to help residents go solar. The deadline to sign up was January 31.
Together, we helped 14 homes go solar!
We had enough aggregated solar to get us into the lowest tier of pricing through our partner installer, Milhouse Enterprises. A huge thank you to everyone who helped make this possible!
The Orford volunteers aren’t stopping here. They will continue to use their Solarize contact list to connect residents with local energy-related news and opportunities. Email Emily Bryant to be added to that list and stay in the loop.
It's Still a Great Time to Go Solar
