Sunlight Solar is delighted to announce that we have been selected as the installer partner for a new Solarize program for faith communities.
Sparked by the success of the town and city programs of Solarize Connecticut, Solarize with Faith is a coalition of faith communities that works together to help faith group members install residential solar. While an individual house of worship cannot provide the critical mass to allow a solar installer to pass along the savings associated with bulk purchasing, a group of houses of worship most certainly can.
Like the other Solarize programs, Solarize With Faith is a partnership with communities, the non-profit marketing company Smartpower, and a pre-selected, vetted installer.
“We are expanding our definition of community to include places where people work, play…. pray,” said Brian F. Keane, President of SmartPower. “A lot of people have stronger ties to their faith community than to their town or city, and we want them to be able to participate in Solarize as well.”
Faith communities from across the state met on December 11 to learn more about the program and the benefits of getting on board. The early response has been incredibly positive, with a strong turnout at the informational meeting. The initial communities will be confirmed in mid-January, with the first round of the program slated to begin in February.
