GO SOLAR at Home

Solarize Philly is a citywide program to help all Philadelphians go solar at home. The Philadelphia Energy Authority (PEA) launched Solarize Philly to make the process of installing solar as easy and affordable as possible, while also supporting solar training at the School District of Philadelphia and improving access to clean energy for all neighborhoods.

PEA carefully selected high quality installers and equipment, and negotiated discounted prices and important consumer protections to help Philly grow its solar market.

The Goal

Solarize 500 Philadelphia rooftops, more than doubling the number of solar installations in the city.

Who Is This For?

Solarize Philly is for Philadelphia homeowners who want to install solar on their homes and would like to take advantage of our free solar assessment and discounted pricing. The more people who sign up, the deeper the discounts for everyone. So, spread the word to your neighbors!

How It Works

Homeowners complete the sign-up form and are then connected to one of our approved installers. An installer will provide a free project proposal tailored to your home’s specific needs, based on roof space, electricity usage and other factors.

After you approve and sign a contract, your installer will handle all permitting and engineering requirements and work with PECO to manage the interconnection process before the installation.

Accessible financing for LMI households

PEA is launching a subsidized financing option for low- and moderate-income households. Subsidized financing will be available to 45 households as a pilot program, and additional households will receive benefits as funding becomes available. Participants will still be expected to finance a portion of the project, and financing for a variety of credit profiles will be made available. The first group of subsidized households will be selected by April 1st.

Qualifying households must have incomes between 150% of the Federal Poverty Level and 80% of Area Median Income (see the table below). Households must have a roof less than 7 years old and may not be on a PECO CAP rate. Further details will follow in early 2018.
