The Energy Council collaborated with Energy Trust of Oregon, Solar Oregon, and The Next Door Inc. to host a Solarize campaign in the fall of 2022. The two-month campaign supported homeowners who were interested in installing solar or solar+storage by providing educational workshops and the opportunity to sign up for installation with a pre-vetted contractor. Campaign materials and workshops were offered in both English and Spanish. During the campaign, over 60 people attended workshops and over 100 households requested custom solar or solar+storage bids. The campaign’s solar contractors continue to work with households on contracting for installations. We anticipate being able to share the number of households that moved forward with contracts at a later date.
