Interested in Going Solar?

Want to save money and have the support of experts in installing the right clean energy system for you? Working together, we can continue to make Asheville and Buncombe Co. leaders in clean energy.

Solarize Asheville-Buncombe is a community-based group-purchasing program for solar energy, battery storage, and other clean energy technologies that helps homeowners, businesses and nonprofits become more resilient, reduce energy expenses, and save on the cost of renewable energy systems by obtaining volume discounts on materials and installation services — the more that participate, the greater the savings!

Solarize campaigns harness the power of the crowd to save some major green while residences and businesses go green.

The organizers of the campaign will seek competitive bids from the local solar community to ensure best-in-class materials are installed by qualified solar professionals for the lowest price.
