Solarize Athens is back!

Solarize has returned to Athens-Clarke County and adjacent areas for a second edition with:

  • lower pricing
  • exciting new products, and
  • more community support than before.

Interested in going solar?

Want to save money and have the support of experts in installing the right system for you? Working together, we can continue to make Athens and the greater metro area a leader in solar energy.

Introducing Solarize Athens 2.0, a community-based solar energy and battery storage group-purchasing program that helps homeowners, businesses and nonprofits become more resilient, reduce energy expenses, and save on the cost of renewable energy systems by leveraging the power of group purchasing — 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.

Tiered Pricing Schedule

Residential: Solarize Athens 2.0 residential pricing starts at 10% below the average installed price in Georgia for similar quality materials (Tier I). With aggregate pricing, we achieved savings of 20%+ (Tier VI)!

Commercial: commercial installations are very different from residential with commercial systems generally costing less per watt due to the size and scope of these systems. Therefore Solarize Athens has separate residential and commercial pricing to reflect this difference.

Solarize Athens and Alternative Energy Southeast will help customize a system to suit individual needs. We can help structure your commercial project to maximize returns and demonstrate how Solarize Athens pricing works with federal tax credits, bonus (100%) and MACRS depreciation.

What to expect from Solarize Athens 2.0:

  • Savings: Big savings through bulk-purchase of materials, focus on a limited geographic area, and decreasing tiered pricing schedule.
  • Vetted Contractor and Materials: Through a competitive bid process, Solarize Athens includes the selection of qualified solar contractors and best-in-class materials so you don’t have to.
  • Free Solar Evaluations: Solarize Athens includes a free solar evaluation including preliminary site design, energy usage profile, and financial analysis. Get a 25-year outlook of the benefits of solar for your property.
  • Education and Outreach: Several free workshops and events will be held throughout the duration of the campaign to inform the public of the benefits of solar. Participants will meet the contractors, learn about materials, and ask questions.
  • Limited Time Campaign: To generate momentum and motivate procrastinators, Solarize Athens 2.0 will run for a limited time only. Once the campaign ends, discount pricing goes away.
