Community Application for Grow Solar (Group Buy or "Solarize") program
This form has four sections, and will help MREA get a better sense of the potential your community has for a successful solar group buy ("Grow Solar" or "Solarize") program. The first section tells us a little more about who is applying for the program, and what the community is like. Please note that we understand and acknowledge the challenge of securing partnerships and commitments from a variety of partners during the application process, and for that reason we will accept incomplete applications. We may follow up with you if we have clarifying questions.

We'll use the term "POJ" to refer to "Participating Organizations or Jurisdictions." POJs are the organizations and jurisdictions that you anticipate working closely with MREA to help make the solar group buy successful. The level of support of each POJ varies, and some POJs are much more hands-on than others. Put simply, we're looking for POJs to act as enthusiastic and energetic local champions of the program.
