Solarize Thetford-Strafford - March through June 2014

Volunteers in Thetford and Strafford teamed up in spring of 2014 to help residents go solar. The deadline to sign up was June 30.

Together, we helped 46 homes go solar!
We had enough aggregated solar to get us into the lowest tier of pricing through our partner installers, Catamount Solar and Integrity Energy. A huge thank you to everyone who helped make this possible!

Stay Informed!
The Thetford and Strafford 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 Bob Walker ( to be added to that list and stay in the loop.

It's Still a Great Time to Go Solar

Any installer will give you a site visit and quote for free. Get started by contacting an installer in your area. You can download our list of installers in the Upper Valley, or look for others in VERMONT or NEW HAMPSHIRE. Feel free to request multiple quotes and compare your options.
