NEW round of Solarize Westchester open for applications from Westchester County municipalities!
IMPORTANT DATES: Community RFI DUE February 2, 2017
The Solarize Westchester Team requests submissions from Westchester County communities including cities, towns, villages or coalitions of towns and/or villages to participate in Solarize Westchester 2.0 Campaigns launching in March of 2017 and completing in June 2017. The Solarize Westchester Team will select up to four (4) communities (or coalitions of communities) to participate in this round of campaigns. Coalitions of two to three towns and/or villages may jointly submit one application. Applications will be evaluated competitively.
Once selected, communities will work with the Program Manager to choose a PV installer through a separate Request for Proposal (“RFP”) process issued by Sustainable Westchester. The selected PV installer(s) will provide, at a minimum, competitive pricing, free site visits, collaboration in community outreach, and installation services. Each community and selected installer, with support from the Solarize Westchester Campaign Team, will develop and implement a 12-week community outreach campaign between approximately March 2017 and June 2017 with the goal of dramatically increasing the number of existing solar PV installations in each community.
If you would like your community to participate, encourage your community’s leaders to complete a Request for Information (RFI), which can be found below. To be eligible for the selection process for Phase One, communities must submit an application by February 2, 2017 at 5:00 PM Eastern Time.
