Solarize Pelham is now closed.
Thanks to Solarize Pelham, 41 homes in the Town and Village of Pelham will be generating their own solar power in the coming months—and some already are! Solarize Pelham, which launched in March 2018, is a community program created to encourage the growth and adoption of solar power by lowering the cost and simplifying the process.
These 41 homes will produce a combined 300 kW of clean, renewable energy, significantly reducing the homeowners’ electric bills and reducing demand from the electric grid. Solarize keeps solar affordable by using group-discounted pricing, which increases the savings for community members. Over 200 homeowners requested information about the opportunity to install solar during the campaign, although many were unable to take advantage of the opportunity due to factors such as heavy shade, roof orientation, roof condition, etc. The solar workshops conducted throughout the program helped to broaden community awareness of the benefits of solar energy.
Congratulations to the hard-working volunteers on the Solarize Pelham team for their great work in getting the word out! See photos below for some of the community events that were held.
“The Village of Pelham is excited to partner with the Solarize Westchester team to promote solar energy in our community. With electric rates rising so much, it would be prudent to consider investing in a solar system for your home or business in Westchester County.” —Michael J. Volpe, Mayor, Village of Pelham
“The Town of Pelham is pleased to be able to provide an avenue for homeowners and businesses in Pelham to explore solar energy at a reasonable cost for their properties. This solar energy project will enable us to reduce energy costs and our dependence on fossil fuel and our carbon footprint.” —Peter DiPaola, Supervisor, Town of Pelham
What your neighbors are saying about having solar:

“We installed solar on our home in 2015 and love it! It lowered our monthly costs and we generate 100% of our electricity need using a renewable resource.” – Ariel Spira-Cohen and Victor Birutti
