The New York town of Chatham selected Astral Power for its upcoming Solarize Campaign. The Chatham Climate Smart Community task force spent several months developing a plan for a Community Solar outreach campaign and “we couldn’t be more proud to be chosen,” says Cara Humphrey, VP of Sales & Strategy at Astral Power.
Residents and small business owners in the Chatham area have a unique opportunity to save money on their electricity bills and do something good for the environment. In addition, Astral Power and One Tree Planted are partnering up for the Solarize Chatham campaign — a tree will be planted in each subscriber’s name throughout the campaign.
The deal: Subscribers to Community Solar through Astral Power not only save 10% on locally produced solar energy without equipment or upfront fees, but they also receive a subscription bonus during the campaign. The average household saves $150 per year, but this amount increases for those who consume more electricity.
To celebrate their partnership with the Town of Chatham, Astral Power is offering a $75 sign-up bonus to everyone who enrolls during this campaign, with an extra $50 for the first 100 enrollees. Astral Power is also donating $25 to the Town of Chatham’s Sustainability Fund for each enrollment.
“We were fortunate to be able to install panels in the field behind our house but not everybody can do that or wants to do that,” says John Wapner, Town Board Member in Chatham. “Community Solar will help those people who can’t (have) or don’t want their own panels.”
Astral Power provides access to locally produced clean energy from solar farms to households and businesses at a lower cost than their utility. By handling everything from initial enrollment to billing and support, Astral Power guarantees a 5% to 10% savings on its customers’ electricity costs without any hassle.
