Help us Solarize SE Portland!

Last year’s Solarize Portland effort resulted in 125 homeowners working together to build a 350kW clean energy powerplant (equal to taking 650 cars off the road!) right here on the roofs of SE Portland homes.

Southeast Uplift and Imagine Energy are now partnering to offer Solarize SE, Phase II. Solarize is a community education and solar installation program designed to help southeast Portland homeowners overcome the barriers to going solar at home, including who to hire, how much to budget and where to start. With Solarize Southeast, interested neighbors will join forces to conquer the process as a team, and realize significant cost savings with bulk purchasing power.
