You are cordially invited to the first organizing committee meeting of “Solarize Pelham!”
At the request of a number of community members, the Town and Village of Pelham have indicated interest in supporting a “Solarize Westchester” campaign in Pelham.
Solarize Westchester was launched a few years ago by the NYS Energy Research and Development Authority (and is now run by Sustainable Westchester) to assist communities in organizing to educate residents about solar energy opportunities, work together to select a qualified vendor, and develop a voluntary community-wide purchasing program at a collective (and discounted) price.
In order to be selected, Pelham must demonstrate significant community support, and – more particularly – identify a team of volunteers available to work on the project. This primarily involves vetting a solar installer (with the help of the Solarize Westchester group) and running an outreach campaign to make Pelhamites aware of the opportunity to get solar installed at low cost.
We will need help to put together the application and, if chosen as a Solarize Community, to work together on the project to make solar available at low cost to interested Pelham residents.
The Request for Information (RFI)/Application to participate in the upcoming round is due November 9th.
If you’re interested in participating, please attend this organizational meeting at the Pelham Village Hall on Thursday, October 19th, beginning at 8:00 PM.
