Through our flagship program, SolarizeNC, we organize communities to work toward group discounts for residential solar installations. We offer home-owners a free solar assessment by vetted installers and a pre-negotiated price on industry-standard panels. For example, in 2014 we organized 5 campaigns, and about 1,300 people signed up for an assessment, of which more than 100 people made the switch!
For every residential solar installation completed, we set aside some funds for a learning solar installation at a school. In the fall of 2014 we built one at McDougle Middle School, and are scheduled to build another at Carrboro High School in the Fall of 2015.
