How much does a solar PV system with Solarize Roanoke cost and how do I finance the cost of the system? 

Solarize Roanoke is open to homeowners living in the following zip codes:  24011, 24012, 24013, 24014, 24015, 24016, 24017, 24018 and 24019.
Currently, the number of grid-tied solar PV systems in the City of Roanoke and Roanoke County is equal to 33 homes, and the total installed solar PV capacity is equal to 112.5 kW.  Wouldn’t it be great if we could double the number of installed kW?
Through the Solarize Program, we are able to offer solar PV systems installed for starting at $3.55/Watt. The price is subject to change if you have a particularly steep roof, an exceptionally tall home, or have to consider a pole- or ground-mounted system due to area shading.
