What is Solarize Blaine?

Solarize Blaine is a limited-time program that helps the people of Blaine County install solar power at a discounted price. Solarize Blaine leverages the power of group purchasing to reduce the cost of going solar and our tiered pricing structure increases savings as more people participate. We are working with the best local installers in our region, and have arranged competitive financing through local banks. Check out our free education events on March 31 and April 27, 2016, to get all the information you need to know about going solar.

How do I get started?

Get started by filling out the Solar Assessment form found here. This quick and easy form should take no more than five minutes to complete and helps us understand what kind of solar system makes sense for your home. Within five business days of filling out the form, one of our pre-vetted local installers will call you to schedule a time to come to your home and talk with you about making solar power a reality. All for FREE and with no obligation to buy. It’s that simple!
