Solar Home Tour September 15, 2018
Join us on Saturday, September 15th from 10 am to 2 pm to learn what it's like to generate your own electricity from the sun. PSEA and Solarize Philly are cosponsoring a Solar Home Tour across Philadelphia. You can visit as many solar homes as you wish to meet some of your neighbors who've gone solar through Solarize Philly in the last six months. Find out how much people are saving, what the process is like, and whether it will work for you. Solarize Philly's deadline for applications has just been extended to September 30, 2018, so there's still time. Go to www.solarizephilly.org for a map of all the homes on the tour.
PUC Final Order Closes PA Borders Finally!
The PA Public Utility Commission unanimously issued a final order confirming the intent of Act 40 to insure that the solar energy produced in order to meet the requirements of Pennsylvania's portfolio standard is in fact generated in state. This decision will lead to many more solar jobs all across the state. Thanks to Senator Scavello, Governor Wolf, and all those who worked tirelessly to make this happen.
