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 2020 summer campaign.  

The 2020 Solarize NOVA campaign runs from June 15th through August 31st.  Sign up now at for a free solar assessment and take advantage of discounted prices on solar panels.  

Here are some reasons to Solarize:

  • It’s Easy with Solarize NOVA: Solarize NOVA offers free solar satellite
    assessments to help you determine if solar is right for your home or business,
    conducts community workshops on solar, and connects you with trusted, vetted
  • It’s More Affordable than Ever: By leveraging the collective buying power of
    you and your neighbors, we are able to offer discounted prices with a qualified,
    regional installer. Overall, the cost of home solar has dropped more than 70%
    since 2010. Prices offered during our Solarize campaigns have come down 25%
    from 2014 to 2017, and this year, Solarize prices are expected to be discounted
    10-15% off current consumer rates.
    In addition, the 2020 federal tax credit rate is 26%, but will continue to fall in the
    future. After this year, the credit decreases to 22%, phasing out completely at the end of 2021. LEAP will connect participants with information on the federal tax credit.
  • It’s the Smart Choice to Head Off Rising Energy & Environmental Costs: Residential energy rates will continue to rise in the region, and emissions take a toll on the environment. The energy cost savings and emission-free power from photovoltaic systems make solar a great investment — for you and the environment.

Upon signing up with Solarize NOVA, you will be eligible for a complimentary home
energy assessment with LEAP . This 90-minute assessment will offer you a clear road
map for improving the overall energy-efficiency of your home, as well as free
energy-saving products.
