May 12: Solarize Houston
If you've been curious about solar power options for your home, but are concerned about the initial infrastructure costs, our May 12 Sierra Club meeting is for you! Steve Krebs, from Solarize Houston, will explain a new option Houstonians might consider - a group purchase of solar systems. Group solarizing slashed installation costs by 30% in Portland and reduced upfront costs by $1,590 per project in New York State. Solarize Houston, a non-profit, will collect consumers and businesses that are interested in installing solar systems and use that scale to negotiate volume discounts from installers in competitive bids. “This is win-win for consumers and installers,” says Krebs. “Enrollees are NOT obligated until installation costs are known, the site evaluated and design finalized and they enter into a contract with the selected installer.” Solarize Houston receives nothing. "Consumers receive all savings. Houstonians get a free option to see the cost of solar and learn about whether solar works for their site and budget before paying anything,” Learn more about Solarize Houston on Thursday May 12.
The meeting is at St. Stephen's Episcopal Church, corner of West Alabama and Woodhead.
Our main program begins at 7:30 pm. Social period opens at 7:00 pm
