Thank you for your interest in Solarize Somers-New Castle. This program is now CLOSED.

Solarize Somers-New Castle is a unique program that uses a tiered-pricing structure, town-supported education and outreach and one competitively selected installer to offer quality solar electric systems to homeowners and commercial property owners. The more residents sign up for Solarize, the more the cost comes down.

Thanks to Solarize Somers-New Castle, 76 homes in Somers, New Castle, and neighboring towns will be generating their own solar power in coming months. These 76 homes will produce clean, renewable energy, significantly reducing the homeowners’ electric bills and reducing demand from the electric grid. More than 485 homeowners requested information about the opportunity to install solar, and installers conducted more than 300 site visits to evaluate homes’ solar potential.

Congratulations, Somers and New Castle!


“Somers is looking forward to working with partners in New Castle and the Solarize Westchester team to help our residents and business owners generate their own clean energy while saving money, as well as bolstering our sustainability status.”Supervisor Rick Morrissey, Town of Somers

“We are excited about seeing more solar panels installed throughout our town, reducing our reliance on fossil fuels and creating a greener world for future generations.”Supervisor Robert Greenstein, Town of New Castle
