The Group Approach
Go solar as part of a group, in order to find the best deals on the best systems
By partnering with community groups, neighborhood groups, faith communities, and other affinity groups, Thurston Energy will help people come together to enjoy significant discounts through the group purchase of solar systems. Solarize Thurston will provide a streamlined process through which neighbors and group members can collectively decide where to start, how to budget, what to buy, and who to hire.
Key features of Solarize Thurston include:
- The creation of two buying groups: “West Side” and “East Side” that Thurston County residents and small businesses may join to establish deals for their members
- Grassroots outreach and promotion by group volunteers
- Competitively selected contractors with set prices
- Access to 3% financing for PV systems through Thurston Energy Lenders
- Free educational workshops
- Free site assessments to determine solar suitability
- A limited time offer to get the best deal on solar around!
