Solarize Rondout Valley

Three towns–Rochester, Marbletown & Olive–bringing this to all of Ulster County.We invite all those who are “solar curious” to begin to get their questions answered at our Kick-off event this Sunday in Accord. With Accord’s famous wood-fired pizza.

Trust, confidence and transparency are at the core of our program. We will continue to emphasize our commitment to reaching low to moderate income homeowners. We wish to expand our outreach to farms and agricultural building owners. We are giving increased attention to home energy improvements (home performance) as a way to increase the value of a solar system.
