Arista Power Inc. has partnered with the Genesee County Economic Development Center in western New York to launch a new county-wide community solar purchasing initiative called Solarize Genesee.

Solarize Genesee is a solar purchasing program available to the community that offers bulk pricing, a complete streamlined process from site assessment to installation and tax incentive form assistance, educational workshops and local workforce training, Arista Power says. The program will be available to all Genesee County home and business owners, farmers, institutions and municipalities on a first-come, first-serve basis.

"We are taking the successful community solar purchasing model that we implemented with the Solarize Madison County program and are bringing it to Genesee County," explains John Benetti, project director at Arista Power. "The Solarize program simplifies buying a solar system and uses bulk purchasing and cost efficiencies to offer solar purchasers an attractive return on investment."
