Join the Regent Square Civic Association and Solarize Allegheny to go solar! Solar energy is the fastest growing energy source in the world. While the Pittsburgh region has a reputation as a cloudy place, we receive much more sun than Germany and China - the leading solar nations. There are already more than 11,000 solar installations in Pennsylvania and they are popping up across Pittsburgh neighborhoods Solar electricity is now as affordable as your electric bill and can save you thousands of dollars over the lifetime of the system, creating a sound investment for your home.
Join Solarize Allegheny for a presentation on solar energy, meet pre-qualified solar installers and solar owners, and get information you need to consider going solar. Pittsburgh non-profit Conservations Consultants, Inc. will also be on hand to provide information about the Sound Home Plan, a Home Performance with ENERGY STAR® Program, which is a one-stop-shop to help Pittsburgh-area homeowners identify and make smart home upgrades to make their homes healthy, safe, and energy efficient. More information on the Sound Home Plan can be found at www.getenergysmarter.org.
