Solarize Montgomery launches on Earth Day

CHRISTIANSBURG (WSLS 10) - Earth Day marked the launch of a popular renewable energy program.  

Solarize Montgomery officially kicked off Wednesday. It will run through July 22. During the next three months, Montgomery County homeowners can have solar panels installed at a reduced price.  

Since the success of the Solarize Blacksburg program last year, nearly 20 localities across Virginia have launched solar efforts of their own. That has pumped an estimated $4.5 million into those local economies.  

The goal is to have 60 to 70 Montgomery County homes converted to solar in the next three months.
