The Solarize Charlotte campaign is off to a great start! Since the launch on Earth Day, April 22nd, over 140 homes have signed on to the program and requested a solar audit. People have heard about the program from emails, radio ads, newspaper articles, presentations, canvassing and word of mouth. Please keep sharing the website (cleanerischeaper.com/) and facebook page (https://www.facebook.com/SolarizeCharlotte) with your networks to build the buzz.
Why is this campaign so important for solar energy in Charlotte and North Carolina?
Solarize grows the solar industry
Solarize programs help build the entire local solar industry, creating good jobs, reducing utility bills and replacing climate-damaging fossil fuels. In Portland, Oregon, both Solarize installers (yellow) and non-Solarize installers (blue) experienced a rapid growth in business during the period of the Solarize program.
So how can you become a part of the Solarize Charlotte Champions? We’re looking for volunteers to do door to door canvassing, tabling at events, and giving presentations to groups. For questions about the program please contact Bill Gupton <BillGupton1@gmail.com>. If you know of a neighborhood association or festival that we should be at, please get in touch with Hanna Mitchell <firstname.lastname@example.org>, or if you know anyone who is interested in canvassing please get in touch with Michael Zytkow <email@example.com>.
