Solar Week 2021 Press Conference
August 16, 2021
The Philadelphia Energy Authority (PEA) will hold a press conference to kick off the third annual Philadelphia Solar Week.
During the press conference, PEA will also announce the launch of Phase 5 of Solarize Philly, a citywide program to help all Philadelphians go solar. The results of the first four Solarize Philly phases have put Philadelphia in the national spotlight for solar growth. Since the program’s launch in 2017, nearly 6,500 Philadelphia homeowners have expressed interest in the program, over 750 homes have gone solar (including 50 LMI households), and over $12 million has been invested in communities across the city. Solarize Philly is the largest initiative of its kind in the country.
