4. Request - Help spread the word

We are asking your help to build more momentum and spread the word.   The more people that enroll to learn, the better the potential for a larger total  installed PV solar capacity for the project, resulting in the opportunity for a larger discount for all participants who ultimately decide to install a system.  Some suggested ways to spread the word are listed below.  Let us know of any ideas that you have to further help.

Title: March 13th opportunity to learn about installing solar energy on your home
