The Solarize Wolfeboro Committee, an offshoot of the Wolfeboro Energy Committee, conducted a launch event for their solarize campaign in late February. To date, Frase Electric, LLC, the partner installer, has conducted site visits and given free bids to over 70 residents in Wolfeboro and surrounding towns. On April 23rd, the committee will be hosting its next two big events. In the morning will be a two hour workshop called “Solar 101,” offered to residents throughout the state. This workshop will be conducted by Andy Duncan of the Lakes Region Community College and is targeted at people looking to put solar photovoltaic systems on their homes or land. A second workshop, offered in the afternoon, is targeted at citizens wishing to conduct a solar campaign in their town or community. This workshop, titled “Solar Team Training,” will be led by Sarah Simmonds of Vital Communities (www.vitalcommunities.org). Sarah has developed a model and “toolbox” that greatly helps communities to expand their solar footprint. To learn more about either of these workshops, please visit www.solarizewolfeboro.org.
Solarize Wolfeboro is supported by a seed grant from the New England Grassroots Environmental Fund and with advertising support from Frase Electric, LLC.
