Feb 8: Solarize Point Breeze kickoff

Join the Point Breeze Organization for two events to kick off an exciting new solar campaign in our community – Solarize Point Breeze!  To kick off the program, a brief presentation about the program will be offered along with appetizers and a cash bar. You can check out your home to see if it’s good for solar with our online tools right at the event.  There’s also a followup workshop on February 11.  

7-9 p.m. at Pino’s Restaurant (6738 Reynolds Street).  Free and open to the public, but please register here.  For more information, contact the Solarize Point Breeze Team Leader Fred Kraybill fredkraybill@yahoo.com or Sharon Pillar of Solarize Allegheny at spillar@smartpower.org.

Solarize Point Breeze is a local campaign under the Solarize Allegheny umbrella - a project funded by the Heinz Endowments and managed by non-profit organization SmartPower - to double the amount of solar energy throughout Allegheny County over two years.  Point Breeze is one of four communities that will host the campaign over the next 20 weeks.  Through Solarize Point Breeze residents and businesses will have the opportunity to learn more about the benefits of solar energy through a robust on-the-ground outreach campaign.  In addition, Solarize Allegheny will also incorporate a valuable on-line tool for residents and businesses that helps them connect directly to local, pre-screened, qualified solar installers who will offer competitive bids, guidance and help them get solar on their homes and businesses.

The price of solar has dropped dramatically over the past several years, so that solar is now as affordable as your monthly electric bill.  There’s even a 0% interest loan program through the Pittsburgh Urban Redevelopment Authority for people with qualifying incomes that makes solar a great deal and will help customers save thousands of dollars over the lifetime of the solar system.

Come and find out why Solar Makes Sense for Point Breeze and for your home or business!
