Solar Resources

This page is intended to serve as a collection of solar resources and information for the community.

Solar Benefits:

Solar energy uses a renewable energy source - the sun - and provides many benefits for individuals and the community. It improves environmental quality by reducing carbon emissions & air pollution, supports local solar companies in Pennsylvania, and reduces utility costs for the individuals who install panels on their properties.

Finding a Contractor and Going Solar:

Find a solar contractor (or two!) to assess your solar energy and provide a bid. Certified practitioners can be found through the North American Board of Certified Energy Practitioners (NABCEP) website.

The Consumer Solar Checklist is a great document created by the Interstate Renewable Energy Council (IREC) for consumers considering solar energy on their properties. Also check out their Clean Energy Consumer Bill of Rights - which helps address important issues and ensures a positive purchasing experience.

Solar Energy Industry Association (SEIA) provides a plethora of guides on their website for homeowners who want assistance in valuing their solar systems as well as those who live within a homeowner association.

Financing, Incentives, and Tax Exemptions:

Typical solar installations are paid for through loans or cash, and there are both Federal and State incentives available.

The Clean Energy States Alliance (CESA) has a very helpful guide for solar  financing for homeowners. Download the guide here.
