GreeningUSA and the Syracuse Center of Excellence (SyracuseCoE) Center for Sustainable Community Solutions will host a "Solarize CNY Workshop" on Friday, Oct. 9, 2015 from 12-1:30 p.m. at the SyracuseCoE, 727 East Washington St., downtown Syracuse. This Green Bag Lunch will feature information about the Solarize CNY program, how solar works and how you can benefit from going solar. The event is free and open to the public. Register online by clicking here.

Think solar is too expensive and complicated? Solarize CNY makes switching to solar easier and more affordable than ever. Come to this free workshop to learn how you can save money with the program's bulk purchasing arrangement. You can also meet the program's chosen solar installers for Onondaga County and have all of your questions answered about whether solar energy is right for your home or business. With Solarize CNY you'll not only be saving money, you'll also be helping to save the planet!

Seating for this event is limited, and early registration is encouraged. Attendees are more than welcome to bring their own lunches.

Each Green Bag Lunch topic touches upon a different trait of GreeningUSA's 12 Traits of Sustainable Communities Rating System, the most comprehensive community rating system in the country. The free monthly Green Bag Lunch forums are designed to bring together green professionals interested in sharing their expertise on community sustainability issues.
