Solarize Participant Survey
If you are ready to go solar, please fill out this survey to start the process.


Why go solar?

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. Now is the time to go solar!

*Solarize Northern Indiana is part of an independent steering committee of retired engineers, sustainability professionals, solar owners, city and MACOG staff, and other passionate volunteers. No committee member will benefit financially in any way from this initiative, but we will feel good if we succeed in making it easier and more affordable for people to go solar.

If roof-mounted, how long until the roof needs to be replaced?
If roof-mounted, do you have a relatively shade-free south-facing roof area?
If roof-mounted, what material is your roof made of? (i.e. shingles, metal, slate, title, membrane, etc).
Your answer
I/we probably pay enough federal taxes that I can take advantage of the 30% federal tax credit. This credit will phase down starting in 2020.
Approximately what is your budget for solar, BEFORE the tax credit? (Either financing or total cash payment). A typical upfront cost before tax credit would be $12,000 - $24,000. The net cost after the 30% tax credit is about $9,000 - $17,000.
