Thanks to a coordinated effort across the Triangle, it's easier to add solar to your home or business in Carrboro.
The Town of Carrboro is a community partner of Solarize the Triangle, a community-based group-purchasing program for solar energy, battery storage, and other clean-energy technologies. The more property owners who purchase renewable energy systems, the lower the price to all buyers – through the power of purchasing together.
By promoting clean and renewable energy in Carrboro, the Solarize the Triangle campaign supports the implementation of Carrboro’s Community Climate Action Plan. This initiative will play a role in helping the Town reach its goals to reduce 2010 levels of greenhouse gas emissions 80% by 2030.
Solarize Carrboro will enable residents to invest in solar at a more affordable group-purchasing price and realize the benefits of financial savings through energy efficiency, the creation of new jobs, and improved air quality and public health. In 2017, the Town of Carrboro received a Gold designation from the Solsmart program for its solar community engagement efforts, solar array installation, and changes to ordinances and permitting processes to make solar more accessible for residents.
Solarize the Triangle is partnering exclusively with Yes Solar Solutions for this campaign. The enrollment deadline is Dec. 31, 2022.
