The City of Fairfax is making it easier and more affordable for residents and businesses to install solar power by partnering with the non-profit Local Energy Alliance Program (LEAP) and the Northern Virginia Regional Commission (NVRC) on the Solarize NOVA program 2017 spring campaign.
Dates for the 2017 campaign haven't be finalized yet. Please check for updates at www.SolarizeCityofFairfax.org.
Here are some reasons to Solarize:
• Free Assessments: Solarize NOVA offers free solar site assessments and home energy checkups to help homeowners figure out if solar is right for their home and budget. Sign up
• More Affordable than Ever: With a federal income tax credit of 30%, a bulk discount rate of 15-18% and the prices of solar equipment dropping drastically over the last several years, going solar is more affordable than ever.
• Head Off Rising Energy Costs: Energy rates are rising 2 percent annually. Solar customers regularly see an 8 percent or better return on investment.
• Higher Home Values: Homes with solar have appraisal premiums of 3-6 percent.
