Just family goes solarSeptember 13, 2016 ~ Snake River Alliance

We’re happy to report that with 26 installations either finished or under contract, we’re up to 183kW, more than 2/3 of the way to our goal of installing 250kW of new solar power in the Treasure Valley.

You have until October 31, 2016 to sign your contract and lock in the great prices and products offered by Solarize the Valley. Installation of your roof top solar system will be scheduled for 2016 or early 2017.

Just how great are the Solarize the Valley prices? A new Department of Energy report – “Tracking the Sun” – shows Solarize the Valley prices are below the national median for systems installed in 2015. These self-reported prices represent the up-front price paid by the system owner, prior to receipt of incentives.


In other words, the Solarize the Valley price is right for installation of clean, renewable solar power.
