Solarize Greater West Chester

Our Mission

Promote and advocate on behalf of people and businesses in the Greater West Chester (GWC) area interested in learning about the latest opportunities for distributed clean energy generation. The GWC team is specifically focused on the West Chester area, but we are a part of the larger SolarizeSoutheastPA team. We use the same process and have access to the same great resources.

Solarize GWC will review of your home’s appropriateness for rooftop solar and advice on how to make the process as pain free as possible, and explore ways to reduce your current energy requirements so your solar investment is as small as possible. We are not connected to any particular solar installer or any other business. We’ll never send you a bill or expect a referral fee. We are neighbors helping neighbors navigate the complex process of distributed energy.

I requested a fee solar assessment from the Solarize Greater West Chester website recently. One of their volunteers, Bryan Hutchinson, got back to me in a timely manner and provided a lot of feedback.  First, while my house orientation was not the best for a solar installation, after providing him with a copy of my PECO bill, he helped to point out that I was paying too much for my Electric Generation charges with my non-PECO supplier.  This first action allowed me to search for and find a new energy supplier that could sell me 100% renewable electricity at less than half the cost I was paying.  It appears I’ll be saving over $1K/year now, just with this fast, simple action alone.

Bryan made a special visit to my house, even though we weren’t eligible for a solar install, to assess our home for other possible energy-saving investments. During that visit I showed Bryan all of the home improvements we’ve made, including some of the recommendations from both an energy audit of 10 years ago and a recent PECO Energy Assessment.  He was very informative and attentive, providing me with additional documentation including information which might help me choose an Electric Hot Water Heat Pump to replace my 15-year-old gas hot water heater. 

I’d recommend to anyone who is interested in exploring solar, energy reduction, and/or transitioning to 100% renewable energy to contact Solarize Greater West Chester for a free assessment.  It is truly an organization of “Neighbors helping Neighbors” and I’m sure they will find something to help you like they did for me.
