Solarize Our Community

We're Going Solar!


We've made half our Goal!

The '50 Systems Challenge' posed by  Shaw Solar has been met and The Woman's Resource Center and Boys and Girls Club of La Plata will now receive free solar energy.  Fifty Solarize La Plata participants have confirmed their commitment to install solar by signing contracts with local contractors.

A total of 381 people signed up for Solarize La Plata, and five solar contractors have distributed over 178 solar system proposals. The program’s goal is 100 systems installed by summer of 2014. 


Stay tuned for solar progress!
