The Phoenixville Green Team is a group of local volunteers advocating the vision of a greener community that preserves the environment and promotes healthy, sustainable lifestyles and businesses.

We support local initiatives, build awareness and motivate people on how to “live, work, and play green” in the Greater Phoenixville Area.

We are always looking for curious, passionate volunteers and members interested in exploring, advocating and creating local, sustainable and environmentally friendly ways to improve and enjoy our community.

FORUM: Lease, Buy or DIY. Solar PV for your Home

Understanding your Options!

July Forum - 
Wednesday, June 15th, 7pm to 8:30pm
3rd Floor Molly Maguire's 
197 Bridge St
                                         

The lease or purchase of a solar PV electric system for your home is an investment in your time and money. You have 3 options, Lease, Buy or DIY. This presentation shows what happened when one homeowner considered all three options.
SolarCity will present the lease option, offering a no-money-down option to have renewable energy on your roof that matches or beats the utility rate your paying. Open Sky Energy, a local solar installation company will present the opportunities and issues of purchasing and owning PV.
Finally, why not Do-It-Yourself? Phoenixville based Community Eco Center will discuss the resources being developed to help you git-r-done, with some Smarts and Parts assistance.
