The initiative leveraged our community's buying power to make it more affordable and easier for 74 homeowners, a church, and a local business to go solar in 2017, with 21 projects scheduled to be completed in early 2018.
In the future, the team may re-assemble to offer education workshops. If we get enough interest, we may host a couple education sessions in 2018. This is not limited to the Goshen or South Bend area.

It helps protect against volatile utility rates, adds value to your property, keeps more money in the local economy, and reduces your impact on the environment too. Indiana's solar laws will also change to decrease the financial benefits for systems installed and interconnected, as net metering phases out from now until 2022.
*Solarize is an independent steering committee of retired engineers, sustainability professionals, solar owners, city and MACOG staff, and other passionate volunteers. No committee member benefited financially from this initiative.
