Solarize Northeast provides a pathway to simple and affordable solar installation. In 2009, Solarize helped 200 northeast Portland residents install solar panels on their homes. This year, they aim to match that number. The project is organized by the Northeast Coalition of Neighborhoods, whose mission is to improve the livability of North and Northeast Portland.
Using a competitive bidding process, the team selected Mr. Sun Solar, a northeast Portland business with a strong commitment to customer service, as the contractor. Starting in January, the team will offer educational workshops where residents can learn about converting to solar, tax credits and other financial incentives, and financing options. Experts will be available to answer questions. The workshops are free.
The deadline to participate in Solarize Northeast is May 15, 2012. Contracts signed before February 29, 2012 will receive an Early Bird Special.
