In early 2016, the Sustain Mid Maine Coalition selected Insource Renewables to launch Solarize Mid Maine, an effort to reduce the cost of solar equipment and installation for homeowners and businesses in the region.
Solarize Mid Maine encourages local property owners to install a solar energy system during 2016. Those who sign a contract prior to mid-July qualify for bulk pricing – the driving force behind lowering the cost of solar energy systems. The greater the number of participants in the program, the lower the pricing on equipment and installation will be. The program has already reached its lowest pricing tier.
Solarize Mid Maine serves the communities of the greater Waterville area, as well as the greater Unity and Skowhegan regions. Insource Renewables is collaborating with Unity Barn Raisers and Main Street Skowhegan to serve these communities.
As part of the program, all interested residents and business will receive a free solar estimate. In addition, Insource Renewables will provide individual consulting on other energy options and will lead community education sessions related to solar, mini-split heat pumps, and other effective energy measures.
