Solarize Madison was a grassroots community effort in 2013 and 2015 to develop a community solar initiative to help residents, business owners and municipalities overcome the financial and logistical hurdles of installing solar power through high volume group purchasing. The program will effectively merge community activism and education, simple low-cost marketing, job creation and economies of scale to drive participation. Energy costs are going to continue to rise as fossil fuel resources are depleted. CNY Solar was the chosen installer in 2013 and 2015 for Madison County.
Solarize Syracuse, a grassroots coalition aimed at getting people in Central New York to install solar panels on homes and businesses, has been a "shining success," according to group organizers.
In a statement, Solarize Syracuse's organizers said more than 70 property owners in Syracuse, DeWitt, Manlius and the Town of Onondaga signed contracts to switch to solar power during a recent four-month initiative to install more panels. According to the group, the installation blitz more than doubled the amount of "residential solar" installed in those areas.
CNY Solar was the chosen installer for the Solarize Syracuse campaign in 2014.
Solarize CNY is a grassroots community solar initiative for the counties of Cayuga, Cortland, Madison, Onondaga and Oswego.
Through popular education and by combining the purchasing power of our community, we are helping to shift our region to sustainable energy.
Solarize CNY builds off the successful effort of Solarize Syracuse, which more than doubled the amount of residential solar installed in the Greater Syracuse area in 2014.
CNY Solar was one of the chosen installers for the Solarize CNY campaign from 2015 through 2017.
