FAIRFAX, Va., June 10, 2020 /PRNewswire/ -- The Solarize NoVA solar energy/energy efficiency program returns June 15 through August 31 to Northern Virginia. Home and business owners interested in exploring their solar options can sign up today at www.solarizenova.org.
Since 2014, 372 contracts have been signed through the Local Energy Alliance Program (LEAP)'s Solarize program, totaling more than 3 MW of solar capacity and nearly $9 million in construction value with regional solar contractors. With a streamlined process and discounted pricing, Solarize NOVA is an affordable and convenient way for homeowners to go solar. The program is run by LEAP in partnership with the Northern Virginia Regional Commission (NVRC), and the participating municipal governments. This year, our participating installer is Solar Energy World. For more information about the program, tune in to an upcoming virtual information session.
Upon signing up with Solarize NOVA, you will be eligible for a complimentary home energy assessment with LEAP. This 90-minute assessment will offer you a clear road map for improving the overall energy-efficiency of your home, as well as free energy-saving products.
Electric Vehicle (EV) Chargers
LEAP has partnered with installers who also offer Level 2 EV chargers, which, at 240 volts, charge to a 10-20 mile range per hour, on average. With electric vehicle sales skyrocketing and high solar interest among EV owners, Solarize participants can now bundle both for additional savings. As a bonus, installing solar panels and an EV charger at the same time reduces electrician fees.
P. David Tarter, Chairman, Northern Virginia Regional Commission (NVRC)

Chris Meyer, Executive Director, Local Energy Alliance Program (LEAP)
"Now more than ever, energy-efficiency and solar solutions are vital to securing a clean energy future for Virginia. We are proud to partner with NVRC to make solar accessible for home and business owners in Northern Virginia."
