Thinking of going solar? Better act soon

The Solarize Wilton program is scheduled to end May 18, so anyone thinking of going solar at home needs to act soon.
The final Solarize Wilton workshop will be Thursday evening, April 7, at the Wilton High School Little Theatre from 7 to 8. Solar experts from Ross Solar Group will be available at this final workshop and then at the Wilton Go Green event on May 1.

Additionally, the Wilton Energy Commission is working on establishing evening "office hours" in town during the final two weeks of the program (May 2-18) to make it easier for residents to follow up. Location and times are still being worked out.

The purpose of Solarize Wilton is to make the installation of solar systems more affordable for residents. To do this, the town, the Energy Commission, and Wilton Go Green selected one vendor to perform all solar installations in Wilton, in exchange for discount pricing.

And in addition to the price cuts, Solarize Wilton affords 0%-down financing for qualified residents, and systems added through the program come with 25-year warranties.

Funded by the Connecticut Green Bank through a partnership with nonprofit SmartPower, Solarize Connecticut is a statewide energy program designed to encourage the adoption of residential solar photovoltaic (PV) systems, the incentive being that, for a single community, the more residents who sign up, the cheaper the installation of solar panels becomes for everyone.
