Join the virtual event to learn more about Solarize the Triangle

Pittsboro, NC – Building on the impact and success of its 2022 Solarize campaign, the Triangle Sustainability Partnership, a local government coalition, is offering an opportunity for local residents and businesses to purchase solar energy at discounted group rates in 2023.

Solarize the Triangle is a community-based group-purchasing program for solar energy, battery storage and other clean-energy technologies. Through this unique campaign, residents and businesses can save on the ordinary cost of a system through combined purchasing with others in the Triangle plus the availability of a federal tax credit.

Join a virtual information session on Tuesday, June 27 6:30-8 p.m. to learn more. The presentation will cover the group purchase discount program, how to take advantage of the incentives, benefits of the program, and how to enroll. Individuals may register for the information session on Zoom or visit the Facebook event.

Solarize campaigns are driven by the net effect of buying together during a single, defined period. Based on a tiered “bulk” purchasing concept, the more who contract for their solar installations through the program, the more savings accrue to all participating property owners.

Through the 2022 campaign, more than 180 home and business owners ultimately signed contracts to purchase renewable energy systems for their properties, yielding 2.4 million kilowatt hours (kWh) of annual energy production, more than $300,000 in annual utility bill savings, and nearly $6 million in new clean energy development locally.

Interested residents and businesses should sign up for a free evaluation at The deadline to enroll is September 30, 2023. All residential solar and battery contracts must be completed by December 31, 2023. A separate deadline for commercial/non-profit contract completions is February 28, 2024.

In addition to Chatham County, other participating Triangle communities include: City of Raleigh, Durham County, City of Durham, Town of Cary, Town of Chapel Hill, Town of Hillsborough, Town of Carrboro, Town of Apex, Town of Morrisville, Orange County, and the Town of Holly Springs.

The Triangle J Council of Governments and Solar Crowdsource are facilitating the launch of Solarize the Triangle with this array of partnering local governments and selected installer, Yes Solar Solutions.
