Aurora Community Solar Event
Renovus’ next community solar farm is coming to town & they are offering locals priority access! Join them on Wednesday, April 5th at 6pm at Wells College in Aurora, in collaboration with the Wells Center for Sustainability and the Environment, to learn more about the benefits of community solar.
WHERE: Wells College, Zabriskie Hall Room 106, 170 Main St, Aurora, NY 13026
Everyone can now choose solar! Your panels can live on Renovus’ local solar farm, instead of on your roof. Don’t get us wrong, rooftop solar is a great choice if you have perfect conditions, but 80% of homes don’t. Community solar enables anyone who pays an electricity bill to go solar & reap all the benefits. Solar offers huge savings – never pay for electricity again! Calculate your estimated solar savings today, or sign up for your spot at: renovussharedsolar.com
