The Rhode Island Commerce Corporation (Commerce RI), the Rhode Island Office of Energy Resources (OER) and SmartPower have partnered to launch Solarize Rhode Island, a residential and commercial solar campaign that offers solar at a reduced cost, and with the endorsement and outreach from municipal partners. The program is made possible with the support of The John Merck Fund.
Solarize Rhode Island relies on key components to reduce solar installation costs, including: a) a competitively selected installer in each town; b) a tiered pricing system and time-limited offer to incentivize greater participation; and c) community-based marketing.
Solarize Rhode Island was successfully piloted in North Smithfield, and then expanding to Tiverton, and Little Compton. The campaign is currently rolling out in five additional Rhode Island communities. For more information contact Karen Stewart at firstname.lastname@example.org.
