The Solarize Williamson Campaign “kickoff” meeting was held on Saturday, June 6th and was well attended. There were over 90 people in attendance with over 60 first round applicants now signed up to go forward with the program. Participants will have the opportunity to save money and be able to take ownership of their solar panels in 7-8 years.

Installers have been invited to attend and a short presentation will be given regarding the program. There will be plenty of time for questions.
