SUCCESSFUL SOLAR CAMPAIGN BRINGS NEW ENERGY TO WESTCHESTER COUNTY
One of the most successful solar campaigns wraps up, delivering solar to homes and community buildings too.
Westchester County, NY (August 16, 2016) – Take a tour of Somers and you may notice a trend. Dotting the rooftops of homes, and even local community buildings, are new solar systems. 30 residents in the Town signed up for new solar systems during the recent Solarize Somers campaign. It was one of the most successful campaigns in the Solarize Westchester program.
“We were thrilled to see so much interest and passion for solar. We launched this program in October of 2015 and since then, people have been anxious to learn more. The idea of energy savings, energy independence and doing something positive for the environment has really resonated with so many,” said Michael Blum, Chair of the Somers Energy Environment Committee.
“I would like to thank the residents of Somers for their interest in solar. By taking these steps Somers can continue to be a leader in sustainability, and an example for others to follow,” added Town Supervisor, Rick Morrissey.
Because of the tremendous support, the chosen installer partner, Direct Energy Solar™, donated a 5.2 kilowatt solar system to the Town. The system has been installed on the Somers Library. A celebration will be held on September 1 at 10:00 in front of the Library. “We’ve partnered with dozens of communities, and this is one of our most successful programs. It’s so energizing to see people excited about the possibilities and savings with solar. We’re pleased to make this donation, so everyone in the town can benefit from the power of the sun,” said David Goldberg, manager of Community Business Development for Direct Energy Solar.
