Pike a Panelist on Solarize Campaign Webinar

Solarize Anchorage is a joint effort between the Alaska Center and ACEP to make residential and small commercial solar photovoltaic energy systems more accessible and affordable for homeowners and commercial property owners in the Anchorage Municipality.

The first Solarize Anchorage campaign started in January 2018 and was completed by the end of August 2018 with 30 homeowners signed up to participate and 146 kilowatts of solar panels installed.

ACEP’s Chris Pike, a Solarize Anchorage and ACEP’s Solar Technologies Program team member, has been selected to participate in an upcoming webinar, “How to Develop a Solarize Campaign” on Monday, Aug. 26, at 10 a.m.

To participate in the webinar, please register at https://attendee.gotowebinar.com/register/4655309542598324747.

This webinar will serve as a resource for communities that are interested in developing Solarize campaigns and will feature two cases studies: Anchorage, Alaska, and Indiana. Now in year two, Solarize Anchorage brings together academic, nonprofit and community partners to lower the barriers to installing solar in neighborhoods around town. Hear how this community went from 33 systems installed to over 130 rooftop solar installations in a year.
