Solarize Your Home Or Business From April 1 to June 30

Once again, it’s Solarize season! Fairfax County is pleased and proud to participate in the annual Solarize campaign, which brings residents and businesses bulk discounts on solar systems. This campaign is offered in partnership with the Local Energy Alliance Program (LEAP) and the Northern Virginia Regional Commission (NVRC). If you’ve been considering solar for your property, Solarize presents the perfect opportunity to take the next step. This year, the campaign runs from April 1 through June 30.

Through the program, you can receive a free satellite assessment of your property to determine if it is suitable for solar. If you choose to proceed with a solar installation, you will gain access to vetted solar installers and receive a discount off the market rate for your array. The program also offers fixed pricing for electric vehicle charging stations and discounts on battery storage to accompany a solar array, allowing participants to bundle their purchases and make major moves toward a more sustainable lifestyle.

This year, two pre-qualified vendors will serve Fairfax County: Prospect Solar and Solar Energy World. In 2022, it is very important to express interest in the program early as the federal income tax credit for solar installations will drop from 26 percent to 22 percent at the end of the year. In order to take advantage of the higher rate, Solarize participants will need to have completed their installation by December 31.

County residents and businesses can join one of four upcoming virtual info sessions to learn more about Solarize and all that it offers. The dates and times for the session are listed below. More information and registration links can be found here.
