Buy Solar Panels at a Discounted Rate

Kate Bowman, Solar Project Coordinator and Amy Wildermuth, Chief Sustainability Officer for the University of Utah explain U Community Solar and how you can get involved.

U Community Solar is a community solar energy installation program that offers U Community members the opportunity to purchase discounted rooftop solar panels and installation for their homes. U Community Solar first ran in 2014 and was one of the largest discount solar campaigns in the country.

Facts about solar power: 

  • Solar provides clean, homegrown power - Sunlight is a free resource that falls on your roof every day.
  • Savings – Never visit a gas station again and start saving money on your energy bills. Electric vehicles require less maintenance and have no need for oil changes, spark plugs or transmission services.
  • Clear the Air – Reduce your carbon footprint. Vehicle emissions contribute to nearly half of all criteria air pollutants in Utah.
  • Get a great deal – Through U Community Solar and U Drive Electric, you can save thousands of dollars on solar panels or a new electric vehicle, but only until October 31

 

Final Workshop:
Tuesday, October 25
5 p.m. in the Gould Auditorium of the J. Willard Marriott Library

The U of U Sustainability Office, Utah Clean Energy, and Creative Energies will be there to talk about the benefits if going solar and how the program works.

Monday, October 31 is the final deadline to sign up for the program
