what is the "solarize process"?

One of the advantages of ‘going solar’ through a solarize program like Solar Schuyler is that the installer partners that are part of our campaign have been pre-vetted and have agreed to not only follow a set of ‘best practices,’ but they have also agreed on a discount for anyone who enrolls for a free solar assessment through the Solar Schuyler campaign.

Below you will find more information about our partner installers as well as the pricing models and options they’ll be offering throughout this campaign.
