About Us

Solarize Virginia began as a community-based outreach initiative to bring solar power to people in their homes and businesses throughout Virginia through our solarize campaigns. Solarize Virginia is managed by the Local Energy Alliance Program (LEAP) and works in partnership with local governments and other supporters.

Overall, our Solarize campaigns have achieved 322 solar power system installations and totaling 2.3 MW of capacity. Plus, we’ve performed home energy check-ups at more than 330 homes. 

In 2017, our Solarize NOVA initiative, in partnership with the Northern Virginia Regional Commission (NVRC), placed first in the Residential program category from the Virginia Energy Efficiency Council (VAEEC).

So far, our Solarize campaigns have reached the following localities in Virginia:

  • City of Alexandria
  • City of Fairfax
  • City of Falls Church
  • City of Fredericksburg
  • Fairfax County
