Solarize Delta County Delta Launch Event, Wednesday, May 4th, 2016

Delta, CO – Solar Energy International (SEI) along with Delta County Economic Development (DCED), and Empower Energy Systems are proud to announce the launch of the Solarize Delta County effort at an upcoming event in Delta.  The Delta launch event will take place on Wednesday, May 4th from 4-6 PM, hosted by DCED at their location on 145 W. 4th Street, Delta, CO 81416.  Short presentations will be held at 4:30 and 5:30 pm to give an overview of the initiative.

Join the solarize team, installers and partners for a mingling event to learn more about going solar the Solarize way!  Solarize Delta County seeks to increase the accessibility and affordability of solar energy for all Delta County residence.  The effort will also raise local awareness of solar, lower the cost of solar electric (PV) systems and significantly ramp up adoption of PV through the County.  The Solarize effort will feature outreach and social events from April 15 – July 15th to education and guide people interested in utilizing solar systems on a residence or business. 

The Solarize Delta County program is an expanded effort of the very successful 2015 Solarize the North Fork Valley program, that resulted in over $400,000 in local investment in solar with 22 residential systems installed totaling 120kW.   Leveraging new partnerships, financing, and a team of Solar Ambassadors, Solarize Delta County will not only expand the benefits of “going solar” to more county residents, but also galvanize the community around a bigger vision of local energy independence and renewable energy as a means of economic revitalization.

“DCED is pleased to be partnering with SEI and Empowered Energy Systems on this initiative.  We feel that this supports our local economy having a direct and immediate impact on our communities with job creation and keeping funds local.  It just makes sense to bring Solarize to the entire county,” said Trish Thibodo, Director of Delta County Economic Development.
