G.E.T. Solar Communities Program

G.E.T. Solar Communities was launched in Fall of 2021 with two pilot communities – Meadville, PA and the Triboro (Millvale, Etna and Sharpsburg). PA Solar Center worked with dedicated community volunteer Solar Ambassadors to recruit businesses, nonprofits, schools and municipal buildings to apply to the G.E.T. Solar program to explore solar. In June 2022 – PA Solar Center put out an RFP to solar developers for 23 projects with more than 5 megawatts of potential solar capacity.

G.E.T. Solar Communities Expands to Select Five new Communities

The Request of Application (RFA) was released in July with an invitation for communities to apply to be selected to participate in the G.E.T. Solar Communities program. Selected applicant teams will receive training and assistance to conduct outreach to non-residential property owners to consider going solar through the G.E.T. Solar program. Interested organizations will evaluate the organizations’ solar potential and release an RFP for bids from qualified solar developers with assistance from the PA Solar Center team.
