GET Solar McCandless


G.E.T. Solar: McCandless is a group of local community leaders partnering with the PA Solar Center (a statewide nonprofit) to educate businesses, nonprofits, and community property owners on the benefits of going solar through their G.E.T. Solar Communities program. With the rising cost of electricity and the new federal incentives available for those going solar, now is the time to explore how going solar on your property can save you money.

Together, we will provide free technical assistance and financial guidance to organizations in McCandless who want to learn more about going solar — and how it can save them money.


For example, the Community College of Allegheny County (CCAC) successfully went solar this year through the G.E.T. Solar Program. It will save them an estimated $750,000 in energy costs over the next 28 years. The best part? Thanks to a specialized and simple financing package, CCAC didn’t have to put any money down for the project!


Attend our informational session on Friday, January 13th, from 1:00 to 2:30 PM. (Register in the form below.)
At the meeting, you can expect to learn more about our technical assistance and possible financing options that include tax credits, grant programs, USDA REAP program grants and loans. Check out the summary of the GET Solar program HERE to understand the process.

The PA Solar Center will even offer a free assessment of your company’s solar potential and issue RFPs (requests for proposals) for estimates from qualified solar developers. The PA Solar Center will review the bids with you and help you make sense of them — serving as your unbiased guide through the entire process. Another advantage of the G.E.T. Solar program is that it can offer discounted pricing for everyone (since developers will be bidding on multiple projects in one area).
