Communities Purchase Solar in Bulk and Drive Down Costs Together

All of the great details, including how to set up your own program, are laid out in The Solarize Guidebook: A Community Guide to Collective Purchasing of Residential PV Systems,” released in May 2012. This roadmap is for state and local governments and community leaders wanting to create a program to buy PV in bulk. It describes how Solarize Portland executed its program, explains how other neighborhoods across the United States are building off their efforts, and describes the steps needed to have a successful campaign in six months or less [1 ]. This report is an update to a previous version published in January 2011 and includes new info on lessons learned not only in Portland, but across the other 1,960 Solarize installations.
