The Town of Wilton has been selected to participate in a cutting-edge solar program that makes going solar easy and affordable.
Solarize Wilton is part of Solarize Connecticut -- the ground breaking residential solar program that has been spearheaded by Connecticut's Green Bank through a partnership with SmartPower. Solarize Connecticut has helped thousands of residents save money on energy bills through solar.
Solarize Wilton is a coordinated effort across the community, supported by the Town of Wilton, the Wilton Energy Commission and Wilton Go Green. Working together, the Town has selected Ross Solar Group as their solar installer. Ross Solar Group will provide all the solar installations in Wilton in exchange for special discount pricing.
Solarize Wilton also offers residents access to special financing options that make going solar affordable with no upfront costs. SmartPower has partnered with Dividend Solar, a national solar financing company, to help qualified residents save money with the $0 down financing option. Other financing resources are available through Wilton's solar installer.
The Solarize Wilton program will kick off with a workshop on Tuesday, January 12th from 7:00 to 8:30 pm at the Wilton Library, 137 Old Ridgefield Road, Wilton. Residents can learn about the program, be introduced to their solar installer, hear about financing options, and have a chance to learn if their house is good for solar. (Snow date is January 13).
Solarize is an increasingly popular program that increases residential solar through a proven formula. It relies on an on-the-ground outreach campaign provided through the Town that helps educate consumers. The pre-selected solar installer means residents are getting the best possible price and equipment, specifically chosen for Wilton residents. And special financing makes going solar affordable.
Lynne Vanderslice, Wilton's First Selectman, commented: "I'm very excited that Wilton will be participating in such a worthwhile program. Wilton has a proud tradition of taking advantage of environmentally friendly programs through our Wilton Go Green efforts, and I look forward a great partnership with Solarize Connecticut."
