Tonawanda Town officials have announced a limited time price offering to assist residents and business owners who are interested in converting to solar energy through the Solarize Tonawanda program. The campaign was initiated through the efforts of the Tonawanda Planning and Development Department with the support of numerous local businesses and organizations. Solarize Tonawanda has vetted CIR as a local solar company that will install your solar equipment. Solar by CIR will be offering a base pricing at $2.50/watt. This price is significantly below traditional market rate pricing for solar systems in the Town of Tonawanda and across the state.
The public launch event detailing all of the information about the program will be held at 10 a.m. on Wednesday, August 23rd at the Tonawanda Municipal Building, 2919 Delaware Ave, Buffalo, NY 14217. Please come and join us! Tonawanda and Kenmore residents interested in taking part in the program will receive free solar evaluations, including a roof evaluation, preliminary site design, energy usage profile and financial analysis.
To participate in the Solarize Tonawanda campaign you need simply to contact Solar by CIR. They will schedule a time to do a free site visit to see if your property is suitable for solar. They will also need a recent copy of your National Grid bill to see how much energy you use in a given year. They will offer you a proposal detailing the gross cost of the system, minus any incentives and tax credits you would be eligible for. Solar incentives and tax credits, on average, decrease the cost to the homeowner by 50-60%. Additionally, the Town of Tonawanda has budgeted $200,000 for low to moderate income homeowners to purchase their systems. This money will be allocated on a first-come, first-serve basis.
The Solarize Tonawanda campaign will not last forever, this promotion ends on November 24th, 2017.
