- Connect with other people in your community who support solar energy!
There’s still time to find and RSVP for solar homes in and around Arlington.
Already RSVP’ed? Invite a friend, colleague or family member to join you! The more people who learn about the benefits of solar power, the better!
The National Solar Tour is free and open to the public — Everyone is welcome to attend. Whether you are a solar owner, completely new to solar, or somewhere in between — this event is for you. Visit one or several. Stop by for a few minutes or stay for awhile!
Arlington Solar and EV Charger Co-op Happy Hour — October 22
Arlington Rooftop Bar and Grill, 5:30-8 p.m.
Join us for a free meet up to learn about solar technology, how our co-op model simplifies the process, and how going solar can save you money.
Solar has never been easier or cheaper to install. The tax credit is gradually phasing out between now and 2022. Next year, the solar tax credit will be reduced to 26 percent. In 2021, it will be 22 percent in 2022 and beyond, it won’t be available for homeowners at all. If you’ve been thinking about solar, now is the time to take action.
You don’t need to attend the event to participate in the co-op. Visit the website and click “Join Our Co-op” by November 30, for a no-cost and no-obligation solar assessment of your home.
