Solarize Program

GLREA Solarize is a community model of educating homeowners about solar and then offering a ‘group buy’ discount with an Installer to reduce the price of purchasing solar. This approach helps strengthen neighborhood and community connection by capitalizing on peer-to-peer and
neighbor-to-neighbor relationships.
