As a partner in the campaign – 350 Pittsburgh invites you to learn how solar can work for your home or business. Replacing dirty fossil fuels with healthy energy is a crucial strategy to address climate change and improve our local air quality.
While the Pittsburgh region has many cloudy days, we receive much more sun than Germany - the leading solar energy nation! Solar energy - the fastest growing energy source in the world - works well in Pennsylvania and there are already nearly 8,000 solar installations in Pennsylvania. With the steep drop in solar costs and the 30% federal tax credit, solar has become a wise financial investment.
350 Pittsburgh has teamed up with Solarize Allegheny, a project funded by the Heinz Endowments and the Allegheny County Health Department to help residents and commercial property owners consider the benefits of solar energy. At this informational session, we will provide an overview of solar energy. You will also meet the two local, pre-screened solar installers and have the ability to request a free quote for your home through the program. Representatives from a local bank will be available to provide information about financing. Find out about the Urban Redevelopment Authority energy loan (PHRP Plus) with 0% interest for people with qualifying incomes. The installers are offering a $500 discount for all signed contracts by June 16, 2017!
In addition, representatives from the from Conservation Consultants, Inc. will provide information about making your home more energy efficient.
