Free Solar Workshop from Solarize CNY

Please join SolarizeCNY for a free Solar Workshop on Wednesday, April 5, 2017 from 6:00-7:30 pm at the NYS Grange Headquarters (100 Grange Place, Cortland). This will be the only SolarizeCNY event taking place in Cortland County this year. The event is being co-sponsored by Sustainable Cortland, the Cortland County Soil and Water Conservation District and other community partners.

SolarizeCNY has scheduled several workshops around the five-county Central New York region. At the Cortland Solar Workshop, and others offered throughout the area, you'll listen to a short presentation on solar energy, hear about the program, how it works in New York State, and learn about all of the financial incentives that help to make it so affordable. This campaign is the largest Solarize campaign in New York State.

After the presentation, you'll have the opportunity to meet all 7 of our solar installers. Signing up will qualify you for up to three free solar assessments from the seven approved SolarizeCNY installers for your home or business. SolarizeCNY will be with you every step of the way through enrollment, assessment and other steps. As a not-for-profit agency, SolarizeCNY is an honest third party, providing all the information you'll need and can answer all of your questions.

SolarizeCNY is administered by the Central New York Regional Planning and Development Board (CNYRPDB), with organizational support from Alliance for a Green Economy (AGREE), both based in Syracuse, NY. There are dozens of Community Partners around the region that help to make SolarizeCNY so successful. Please visit our Facebook Event page.

If you would like enroll and take advantage of the program the deadline is April 22, 2017. For more information please call 315-422-8224 or visit
