New Opportunit​ies to Go Solar, webinar this Wednesday

New Opportunit​ies to Go Solar, webinar this Wednesday

Do you want to power your non-profit, church, school, college or university with clean, renewable solar power?

Thanks to a new Virginia law, tax exempt institutions in Virginia have access to the same financing that has driven most new solar installations nationwide. Dial in, and learn how your non-profit, church, school, college or university can go solar with little or no upfront cost, paying only for the green power that the solar systems provide.

Join us for a FREE Webinar and learn how your organization can take advantage of this opportunity. (note: The webinar is geared toward colleges and universities, but the programs applies for all tax-exempt institutions in Dominion service territory.)

When: October 16, 2013 – 2:00 – 3:15 P.M.

Register Today: http://bit.ly/1dXO1ZU

Learn from the experts at the National Wildlife Federation, Virginia Chapter of the Sierra Club, Abakus Solar Inc., Secure Futures and Eastern Mennonite University.

The Webinar is free and open to all who register.
Thank you,

    Colleges, universities, schools, faith communities, local governments and other non-profits will find it easier to “go solar” under a law that took effect in Virginia on July 1. Read more about the law here:

    Eligible customers are able to install solar panels or wind turbines with little or no upfront cost, paying only for the electricity the systems provide. This arrangement, known as a third-party power purchase agreement (PPA), has been the driver for most of the solar projects in the U.S. in recent years.
