Thank you for your interest in Solarize Somers-New Castle. This program is now CLOSED.
Solarize Somers-New Castle is a unique program that uses a tiered-pricing structure, town-supported education and outreach and one competitively selected installer to offer quality solar electric systems to homeowners and commercial property owners. The more residents sign up for Solarize, the more the cost comes down.
Thanks to Solarize Somers-New Castle, 76 homes in Somers, New Castle, and neighboring towns will be generating their own solar power in coming months. These 76 homes will produce clean, renewable energy, significantly reducing the homeowners’ electric bills and reducing demand from the electric grid. More than 485 homeowners requested information about the opportunity to install solar, and installers conducted more than 300 site visits to evaluate homes’ solar potential.
Congratulations, Somers and New Castle!
