A new Solarize concept, Solarize Research Triangle, will include employees of companies in RTP and the Triangle, as well as employees of both Duke University and UNC Chapel Hill. Using the Oregon based model, the programs will use their organizations’ members for outreach and promotion, and discounted pricing from bulk purchasing and tiered pricing. As number of installations of kilowatts increase, prices decrease for all who signed up. This program enables companies and universities to offer their employees access to the tiered pricing and bulk discounts negotiated by the non-profit sponsor Next Climate of Carrboro, N.C The installers, like Yes Solar Solutions, can offer lower pricing with less marketing and acquisition cost.
The program is timely with the North Carolina 35% solar tax credit set to expire at the end of 2015, and the 30% federal tax credit expiring in 2016. Solar has never been more affordable, and the more people who sign up for Solarize, the lower the final price for all. There are multiple information sessions for more information, or visit Yes Solar Solutions
