Ever thought about going solar?   Now is the time!!

Join the 62 other Ventura homeowners who went solar last year through the Solarize Ventura program.  Now through August 15, the 2015 Solarize Ventura program offers deeply discounted pricing, preselected solar contractors, and a free independent solar advisor to walk you through the entire process.  Federal (30%) tax credits are also available to help make solar even more affordable.  This program is made possible through a partnership between the City of Ventura and the Community Environmental Council.  Visit Solarize Ventura to learn more about the program.

Zero out your carbon footprint by combining rooftop solar with an electric vehicle.  For more information, Solarize Ventura.

Community members are invited to attend a FREE informational workshop to learn more about going solar:

  • Monday, July 20 - 6pm to 7:30pm, Ventura City Hall, Community Meeting Room, 501 Poli Street
