We are very excited here at Energy Emporium to have won the bid to Solarize Lebanon and Enfield!
This is our home town and we want to work with our neighbors and friends to provide information, installations, and on-going maintenance for those who are ready to take those steps. We have been working with the Solarize Hanover program over the last 6 months and are very excited to add Enfield and Lebanon to this program!
For information on the “Solarize Lebanon-Enfield” program, please go to this link at Vital Communities: Solarize Lebanon-Enfield. The basic idea of this program is to encourage residents and small business owners to learn about locally generated solar electricity which can help reduce their electric bills.
The more people who sign up to put solar on their roof, the lower the cost is for everyone in the designated community.
Vital Communities is a non-profit organization that is running the program. Volunteers from Enfield and Lebanon have gotten together to work within their towns to encourage participation.
The Energy Emporium was chosen as their designated installer! We will do all the site visits, install solar PV systems for those who would like it, and help out with all the paperwork associated with rebates, permits and interconnection to the utility company. We did over 160 site visits for Hanover throughout the winter, and are now in the middle of installing systems.
With a program this size, we will focus on getting site visits done and providing proposals as the highest priority. For those who want to sign contracts, we will prepare their rebate paperwork quickly to reserve the rebate funds. After that we begin the design documents, permitting and interconnect paperwork. Once we have a good idea of the quantity of homes we will be installing, we will start purchasing equipment and installing systems.

Please come to the Kick-Off meeting to learn more! It is June 9th, 5:30pm at the Lebanon Opera House.
Hope to see you there!
