Official Kick-Off Workshop

Refreshments and light snacks will be served.


We’ll offer a brief presentation about the benefits of investing in solar, and instructions on how you can go solar through the Solarize Allegheny campaign, along with refreshments and light snacks. The pre-qualified solar installers will be on hand to tell you if your home is a good candidate for solar. In addition, representatives of Dollar Bank and Citizens Bank will be available to explain financing options. If you bring a copy of your electric bill, you can sign up for a solar quote at the event.


Solarize Squirrel Hill is a local campaign under the Solarize Allegheny umbrella — a project funded by the Heinz Endowments and managed by non-profit organization SmartPower — to double the amount of solar energy throughout Allegheny County over the next two years. Squirrel Hill is one of three communities that applied for and was selected to host the campaign over the next 16 weeks. Through Solarize Squirrel Hill, residents and businesses will have the opportunity to learn more about the benefits of solar energy through a robust on-the-ground outreach campaign that connects people directly to local, pre-screened, qualified solar installers who will offer competitive bids, guidance and assistance to go solar – making the process simple and affordable.


The price of solar has dropped dramatically over the past several years, so that solar is now about as affordable as your current electric supplier.


Come and find out why Solar Makes Sense for Squirrel Hill – and for your home or business!
