NYSERDA: 2018 Resource Guide to Solarize Campaign Success

This Resource Guide for Solarize Campaign Success from the New York State Energy Resource and Development Authority (NYSERDA) is a roadmap for community leaders who want to make solar power easier and more affordable for their neighbors. Solarize campaigns bring together groups of potential solar customers through widespread outreach and education, and help customers choose solar companies that are offering competitive, transparent pricing. Solarize started in 2009 as a grassroots effort in Portland, Oregon and since then dozens of communities in New York and across the nation have run successful Solarize campaigns.
