About Solarize

Solarize is…

A community volunteer effort to make solar simple by working together! Over 30 communities across New York State applied for grants from NYSERDA’s Community Solar Program. Schenectady County residents were one of those groups! Your neighbors were awarded a grant to competitively select a solar developer and conduct solar education and outreach from May 2016 to September 2016!

Grant and technical support by:

Solarize Outreach & Volunteering

Schenectady County has over 1,000 residential solar installations! Solarize volunteers wants to see that number grow. So we have been participating in community events and hosting presentations to answer peoples questions about solar energy.
