Go Solar at Home
In 2010, City Council and then-Mayor Michael Nutter chartered the Philadelphia Energy Authority (PEA) as an independent municipal authority to provide targeted expertise and focus to Philadelphia’s efforts to reduce energy consumption and expense.
In April 2017, PEA launched Solarize Philly, the first citywide solarize program. Solarize campaigns allow a group of homeowners to install solar together at a reduced price. The more households moving forward, the lower the cost for all participants.
As of September 2017, more than 2,000 households have expressed interest in participating in Solarize Philly from across the city.
