BUFFALO, NY – Solar by CIR is happy to announce its participation as an installer for the ‘Solar Chautauqua’ campaign. This campaign is comprised from the Coalition to Solarize Chautauqua County with support from New York State’s Energy and Research Development Authority (NYSERDA). The goal of this campaign is to increase the number of solar electric (PV) installations in a focused neighborhood or community. Using community volunteers, active local government and a local non-profit, the program capitalizes on the purchasing power of a community and motivates the residents by offering significant savings through a limited-time bulk purchase opportunity that also removes other common market barriers. Although outreach events are limited to the focus neighborhood in Northern Chautauqua, residences, farmers and small businesses alike through Chautauqua county are encouraged to participate.
Case studies in other communities have shown a 20 – 40% discount on solar installations for participants. In addition, it will provide jobs and spur the market for ongoing growth in the local solar industry.
