Receive funding to install solar PV on municipal facilities or land to save on energy costs and reduce your environmental impact.
By investing in a solar PV system now, you can begin to see immediate savings on your electricity bills and reinvest those savings into other priorities across your municipality.

Installing a solar PV system will:
- create jobs and help your local economy,
- generate free power any time the sun is shining for your system’s entire 25+ year life,
- demonstrate your municipality’s commitment to sustainability and social responsibility,
