Let’s Solarize Syracuse

The Peace Council has joined with Alliance for a Green Economy and several other local organizations in a grassroots community solar initiative called Solarize Syracuse. The project is a way for us to work together to build solutions to the problems of climate change, wars for oil, fossil fuel and nuclear dependency, and volatile energy prices. Solarize Syracuse will make putting solar panels on our homes and businesses easier and more affordable through a series of community workshops and a bulk buying program.
