As Solarize Mansfield-Windham draws to a close, volunteers are planning a solar installation event, an opportunity to see solar arrays installed and to ask questions of the official installer C-TEC Solar, before the July 31 deadline to sign up.
The event is Monday, July 22 from 3 to 7 p.m. at 137 Oxbow Drive in Willimantic.
Due to the strong response by residents in both towns to Solarize Mansfield-Windham, the program has now reached Tier-5 pricing, which is the lowest possible price.
Homeowners who sign contracts through the town-sponsored Solarize program can expect to save thousands of dollars for the solar installation as well as reduce annual electric bills by approximately $1,000, depending on the size of the installed system.
If you cannot attend Monday, you can learn more about how you can participate in Solarize Mansfield-Windham – including a free site evaluation visit by the authorized contractor – by calling Mansfield recycling agent Ginny Walton at 860-429-3333 or via email at at waltonvd@ manfieldct.org
You may also talk with the contractor C-TEC Solar directly by calling 855-76-SOLAR (855-767-6527) or visit www.solarizect.com/Mansfield-Windham
You can also talk to representatives of the Solarize Mansfield-Windham program at the Willimantic Farmer’s Market on Saturday, July 27, between 8 a.m. and noon. The market is located under the Union Street pavilion near the intersection of Main and Jackson Streets (across from Jillson Square, just up Jackson Street from the Frog Bridge).
