Solarize Irvine

The City of Irvine, in partnership with the nonprofit OC Goes Solar, is excited to announce the launch of Solarize Irvine. This program helps Irvine residents who are interested in going solar and learning about new ways to support the City’s ambitious goal of carbon neutrality by 2030, by providing access to group pricing discounts for solar power and battery storage.

The program will be marked by three key phases:

  1. Community Evaluation Panel: OC Goes Solar will recruit members of the Irvine community interested in volunteering on a community contractor evaluation panel to vet and select contractors who wish to participate in the group solar program
  2. Educational Workshops: Once contractors are selected as program partners, OC Goes Solar will host public workshops for registered Irvine residents. The presentation will cover the basics of solar and battery storage, as well as a pre-negotiated pricing structure for the program selected systems. After the presentation, attendees will also have a chance to meet and greet with the selected contractors and representatives from the City of Irvine.
  3. Program Launch: Following the workshop, the program will open for all registered Irvine residents to receive quotes and pursue discounted installation of solar and energy storage systems.

See available workshops below to learn more.
