We are Solarize Carrboro, a local initiative whose mission is to bring affordable solar power to the people of North
Carolina. We believe this is the best way to bring lower energy costs,
self-reliance, and energy independence in a way that protects our
environment and lifestyle for future generations.
UNC Chapel Hill student interns Drew Chandler and Michael Balot joined the Solarize Carrboro initiative in the spring of 2014 and have worked closely with McDougle Middle School students and teachers to get this project off the ground.
What We Need & What You GetWe need $8,000 to build this array and install the web-based solar monitoring software that will really transform the project into an educational tool. Check out our unique perks on the right, and please donate what you can!
By contributing to this project, you will be supporting McDougle students and Carrboro residents who want to learn more about how solar photovoltaic power works.
- The solar array will have real-time web-monitoring software so anyone can see how much energy the panels are producing at any given time from any location with an internet connection!
- We have already had over 200 people sign up for the free home solar assessment in Carrboro, so we know that people are interested in going solar!
- Teaching this generation about how solar energy works will foster future leaders who care about the country's energy policy
