The City of Cranston

Latest Solarize Cranston Information

September 12th, 2017

At the request of Cranston residents and town administrators, the Solarize Cranston program will be extended until October 6th, 2017, giving residents an additional four weeks to go solar.

Interest in the program has steadily increased since its launch on June 7th. Over 150 Cranston residents have signed up with interest and 31 have signed contracts to date. As a result, Cranston has also reached its lowest pricing ? Tier 3. Every resident who signs up, and those who have signed up already will be eligible for the lowest pricing available ? a 20-25% reduction below the state?s average. RGS Energy, the City?s chosen solar installer, will host a city-wide solar open house event on Saturday, September 16th from 10:00am ? 1:00pm at five locations around the City.
The five locations are:

54 Parkway Ave.
401 Auburn St.
1499 Narragansett Parkway
16 Hope Rd.
114 Clarence St.

The open house event is free and open to the public. Residents are encouraged to drop by one or more of these location to meet homeowners who have gone solar and have experience with the state?s incentive programs. RGS Energy technicians will be on hand to answer questions and sign residents up for the solar assessments.

Gretchen Proulx, a Cranston resident, was one of the first to schedule a solar assessment: ?For our family, going solar makes sense for many reasons: it makes sense financially, ecologically and it makes sense for the future of our community.?

Residents can also sign up at one of Solarize Cranston?s information tables on Saturdays at the Pawtuxet Farmer?s Market and at the Cranston Central library from 10am ? 1pm.
To sign up for the program or find out more information about upcoming events, residents can go to:

The program was created through a partnership between the Office of Energy Resources, Commerce RI and the non-profit organization SmartPower to encourage the adoption of solar using the power of group purchasing and a grass-roots community outreach plan. Warren is one of ten municipalities to participate in this state-wide initiative which is responsible for over 350 new solar installations in the state since 2014.
