Rooftop solar workshops available
The Times


CARMEL - The Carmel Green Initiative has partnered with Carmel and other communities in Hamilton County to co-host the Solarize Hamilton County 2017 Campaign.

The goal of this community education program is to increase understanding of solar investments, simplify the solar installation process, enable access to program discounts and advance as many solar installations as possible before the end of the year.

The program was launched with a workshop at Carmel City Hall in June.

Additional workshops are scheduled for:

• 6:30 p.m. Aug. 16, Carmel Clay Public Library, 55 4th Ave. SE, Carmel.

• 6:30 p.m. Aug. 23, Noblesville City Hall, 16 S. 10th St. Noblesville.

• 6:30 p.m. Aug. 29, Westfield Washington Public Library, 333 W. Hoover St. Westfield.

Attendees will learn the basics about this new technology, how net metering affects return on investment and how to select a solar installer.

All workshops are free and open to everyone. You do not have to be a resident of the community where the workshop is being held to attend.

In order to provide good product quality at a good price, campaign organizers have selected three solar installers to provide participants with immediate access to pre-qualified, price-competitive solar installation firms. In addition, the participating installers will offer a group discount during the campaign. The campaign ends on Sept. 30.

To maximize the economic benefit of solar investments, installations must be completed by the Dec. 31, deadline.

Senate Bill 309, designed to phase out net metering in Indiana, was signed into law by Gov. Eric Holcomb in April.

According to this new law, solar installations completed in 2017 will qualify for full net metering rates until 2047; installations completed from 2018 to 2022 will only qualify for full net metering rates until 2032; and net metering will no longer be available for installations completed after 2022. Net metering allows you to sell back to the grid unused energy at full retail kilowatt price.
