Solarize Brooklyn CB2 Launch

May 18 | Urban Future Lab

Solarize Brooklyn CB2 is organizing building owners in Brooklyn’s Community Board 2 to go solar together this year. Solar energy technology is more affordable than ever before. Between high electricity rates and generous solar incentives, solar is a great investment. If you are considering solar, there is no better way than through a Solarize campaign! Come and learn how you may participate or volunteer! The agenda includes remarks and presentations from the Office of the Brooklyn Borough President, the Mayor’s Office of Sustainability, the Economic Development Corporation, Sustainable CUNY, Solar One, and a testament from CB6 Solarize Group.
