About Solarize Rhode Island

Solarize Rhode Island (Solarize RI) is a program designed to encourage the adoption of residential and commercial solar photovoltaic (PV) systems through a coordinated education, marketing and outreach effort, combined with a tiered pricing structure that provides increased savings to homeowners and businesses as more people go solar.

The Solarize program is based on a proven model designed to bring down the cost of solar PV when customers sign up for a pre-selected installer’s offering. The more people who sign up to install solar, the more the price decreases for everyone who participates. And because the installer, the technology and the exact price of PV are provided upfront, it is much easier for residents and businesses to make the decision to go solar.

The Solarize approach has already met success in Oregon, Massachusetts, Connecticut and other states across the country. And with the guidance and support of the Office of Energy Resources, Commerce Rhode Island, the John Merck Fund, and SmartPower, we are excited to make it a reality here in Rhode Island.
