Solar House Parties

Come learn how you can Go Solar at your home or business!  Join us at a Solar House Party in your neighborhood, hosted by a home or business owner like you. There you will learn first-hand how a rooftop solar system can lower monthly utility costs, reduce greenhouse gas emissions and help you achieve energy independence in your own home!  Here's how:

The Host: A homeowner like you who recently installed a rooftop solar system. You'll be welcomed into their home to see how 'going solar' has changed their life. Start a solar movement in your neighborhood!

What you'll see: A real rooftop solar system in full operation. See the solar modules (panels), the inverters, the wiring... If you're there in the day-time, you'll even see the meter run 'backwards' arooftop solar installations the system makes free energy from the sun!




What you'll do: We talk about how rooftop solar works, how to make it happen, financing options, and how to engage with the local solar contractor community.

Whom you'll meet: Friends, neighbors and your Solar Sonom
a County 'Clean Energy Advocate' Geoffrey Smith.  You will *not* meet any

When will this party be?  Depending on the party host's desires, the event will run from 1 - 2 hours, either early evening or weekend.

What else? You'll make new friends, and meet old neighbors. You might learn something about rooftop solar, electric vehicle charging, and 'fuel-switching' your home to electricity that could change your life.

Q & A:  Bring your questions about technology, financing, energy rates and we'll provide the answers. Most importantly, you'll benefit from the experiences of friends and neighbors who are making the move to a low-carbon, inexpensive, solar energy economy!
