Galvanizing our Energy Transition (G.E.T.) Solar

 

G.E.T. SOLAR ROUND THREE NOW OPEN

The Pennsylvania Solar Center is pleased to announce round three of our G.E.T. Solar (Galvanizing our Energy Transition) program wherein we provide technical assistance and financial guidance for organizations across the commonwealth looking to benefit from solar energy. The Solar Center understands that the process of installing solar can be daunting and is committed to supporting businesses and non-profits through each step along the way.

While we know many organizations are grappling with the incredible challenges of the Covid-19 crisis, we believe that in times of crisis we must continue to think and plan for the future, to prepare our infrastructure for the next series of challenges that await.

We also believe that renewable electricity is paramount to sustainability, the ability for our systems and ourselves to prosper, to grow to, regenerate rather than deplete our resources – both natural and financial. Renewable energy (along with energy storage, energy efficiency and smart grid technologies) is also important to build a more resilient electric grid to increase the likelihood that our systems will endure in the face of adversity and disruption.

Organizations across the commonwealth have until Friday, July 31, 2020 to submit a completed application.

The full Request For Proposals (RFP) which outlines the goals and parameters of the G.E.T. Solar program can be found below (there are separate RFP for businesses and tax-exempt organizations). We would encourage all interested organizations to fill out a prequalification survey below to get more information about your suitability for solar and to learn more about how the G.E.T. Solar initiative can help. Interested organizations should also attend our video conference webinar on Wednesday, July 1, 2020 to learn more about the PA Solar Center, G.E.T. Solar, and to have all of your questions answered. See below for more details.
