Our focus is Northwest Philadelphia. There are other efforts to ramp up clean energy in Southeastern Pennsylvania, notably:

Solarize Center City – They had a kickoff event on October 5, 2016, led by Judy Wicks and Solar States. Read about it here. And since then, at least 3 outreach events. They are still recruiting more residential accounts.

Solarize Greater Media – Organized by Transition Town Media and Solar States, about 50 households signed up earlier this year. Recruitment for this buying club ended in May 2016. More about this effort is found here.  See Installing Solar? Hookups not automatic, a recent news article about their journey.

Solarize NW Philly – Organized by Clean Air Council and the Sustainable Business Network of Greater Philadephia, in partnership with solar contractors Exact Solar and Solar States, this resulted in about 15 homes in the Northwest getting solarized. Recruitment ended January 2015, with most of the installations done in 2016.
