"Solarize" is a group bulk-purchase process that can help neighborhoods and cities install rooftop solar photovoltaics at reduced cost. Learn how you can start a solarize program in your neighborhood. The goal of the meeting will be to begin creating a network of people across the DFW area that are interested in launching projects in their own communities.
