Solarize Our Congregation
Sunrise Solar Solutions, headquartered in Briarcliff Manor, has contracted with Solarize Our Congregation to provide discounted solar installations to members and friends of selected religious organizations in Westchester, Rockland and the Hudson Valley.
Sunrise Solar Solution will be the solar installer for the Hudson River Presbytery–South, which includes 34 Presbyterian congregations in Westchester and Rockland Counties. HRP-Green, a faith-based partnership in the Hudson River Presbytery dedicated to raising awareness and action around environmental and climate change issues, will coordinate the program for the presbytery.
This is Sunrise’s 10th contract with Solarize, a community outreach program that uses discounted pricing, education and outreach to offer quality, affordable solar electric systems to property owners. The current Solarize Our Congregation campaign is offered in partnership with Sustainable Westchester.
Technical support is provided by the New York State Energy Research and Development Authority under Governor Andrew M. Cuomo's NY-Sun initiative, which will invest $1 billion in solar power through 2023 to expand solar installations. HRP-Green, which conducted extensive outreach to area churches and congregations, helped tailor the Solarize program for its members.
Several HRP Presbyterian churches will be holding Solarize Our Congregation info sessions, which are open to members and friends of HRP Presbyterian congregations as well as members of the surrounding community. Sessions have already taken place in Pleasantville, Rye and Montgomery. (To find out about upcoming sessions, visit SolarizeOurCongregation.org.)
Homeowners who sign up for solar installations by June 4 will qualify for group rates significantly below market prices. Commercial and nonprofit property owners who sign up for information about the program by June 4 will have until October to sign a contract.
