Solarize Harrisonburg is a local, grass-roots cooperative to increase the use of solar power in Harrisonburg/Rockingham County. Under this program, community members leverage bulk buying power to lower their installation costs. It began at a June 2 meeting which about 100 persons attended. Solarize Harrisonburg officially launched on July 28, assisted by Community Power Network (CPN). Since then, about 70 persons have completed a survey/signup form on the web site, http://www.vasun.org/solarize-virginia/solarize-harrisonburg/, and are receiving free solar roof assessments. CPN and cooperative members will select installer(s) in mid‑September. Contracts and installations will occur Q4 2014. A final informational meeting will happen at Massanutten Regional Library, Harrisonburg, on Oct 21, at 6 PM. The signup deadline is October 31. To ask questions, email firstname.lastname@example.org and come to the meeting.
