In 2011 Neighbors West-Northwest and North Portland Neighborhood Services teamed up to bring the Solarize program to our areas. Interested neighbors came together to choose a contractor, purchase and install solar as a community, and save significant costs as a result of bulk purchasing of solar electric panels. When communities run their own volume purchasing programs they reduce costs associated with a traditional solar installation.
Learn more about how this volume purchasing program works to save money and give more people access to sustainable, cost-efficient energy, and for additional solar energy resources, visit the Solarize Portland website.
