Go Solar PVD

In 2011, WBNA launched its bulk purchase solar panel program – the first of its kind in Rhode Island – making renewable energy initiatives more affordable to home and business owners, and encouraging the use of green practices in historic districts.


GO SOLAR PVD 2019

WBNA with neighbor-owned Sol Power is offering a bulk purchasing program for solar panels on residential and business properties located in Providence through November 15, 2019.

This program allows property owners to take advantage of a 30% federal tax credit before it ends this year, benefit from group discount pricing on installation, pay less each month than an electric bill, and get a 8-12% return on investment! A free assessment by Sol Power will determine if solar panels would work for your property’s location.

WBNA’s Go Solar PVD is a turn-key program that makes going solar easier. We take care of permits, coordinate installation, and offer low interest loans to qualified applicants (residential only) through our Solar Revolving Fund. Full project financing is available.

Contact GoSolar@solpowersolar.com before November 15, 2019 to make the most of existing tax credit incentives and many more benefits offered through our program. Be sure to mention WBNA to be included in our group discount program. And please spread the word – as more neighbors participate in the program, the price per customer drops!

background

WBNA created Rhode Island’s first bulk purchase solar panel program in 2011 called West Side Solar. With grant funding from RI Commerce Corporation, WBNA facilitated the installation of solar panels on thirty-three homes and small businesses totaling 133.96kW.

In 2015, WBNA expanded its program beyond the neighborhood, and worked with SolPower on an additional eleven solar panel installations equaling 60.46kW throughout Providence.

Now, starting August 1st of 2019, WBNA proudly rejoins with SolPower to launch our third round of solar installations for residences and small businesses through November 15, 2019, before federal tax credits are reduced in the new year.

Go Solar PVD is a group purchase solar panel program that realizes economies of scale to provide photovoltaic (PV) systems to qualified homes and businesses in WBNA’s focus area and throughout Providence. Local vendor Sol Power provides competitive, group discounted pricing for a direct-ownership model for residential and small-scale commercial installations, and special pricing for larger commercial projects, as well.

WBNA’s bulk purchase solar panel program has so far facilitated 44 solar panel installations on residences and businesses in the neighborhood and beyond
