The deadline has been extended for Newtown residents looking to switch to solar power. Solarize Newtown is a discount buying program, similar to ones implemented in other towns, that uses a tiered-pricing structure to reduce the cost of solar. Newtown is now at Tier 4 pricing and the deadline is February 28th.
If Newtown reaches 100 installations, Astrum Solar will donate $25,000 worth of solar panels on a Newtown municipal building, like the rebuilt Sandy Hook Elementary School.
There is an open house to learn more about the program on Saturday.
