Jan. 31, 2018 will be known as “Solarize Dunwoody Day” in the city following a proclamation by the Dunwoody mayor and City Council to recognize the Solarize Dunwoody Coalition for its effort in raising awareness of solar energy.

In the front row from left are Mayor Denis Shortal, Tina, Ben, and Anna Wilkinson and Robert Wittenstein. In back from left are Paige, Reid and Jason Metzger, Scott Wilkinson and Don Moreland.

The proclamation was announced at the council’s Jan. 8 meeting.

Jan. 31 is also the last day for Dunwoody residents to sign up in the Solarize Dunwoody program where people can sign up for a free solar evaluation from Solarize Dunwoody’s chosen installer, Hannah Solar. The date does not end the program, however, as people who have signed up at www.solarizedunwoody.com will have two more months to decide if solar is right for them and enter into a contract.

“I hope we’ll see a surge of sign-ups on or before Solarize Dunwoody Day and then think we’ll see even more people actually go solar,” said Tina Wilkinson, a leader of Solarize Dunwoody.

The Solarize Dunwoody program began Sept. 1. The more people who sign contracts to install solar power at their homes or businesses, the cheaper the price for all involved in the program. To date, 20 homes in the city have committed to the program.

  1. We got our panels under this program and the experience was incredible. No high pressure sales, professional installation crew, and all work was permitted and inspected. Our bill are now half of what they normally run. It’s now a game to see how much power from the sun we can use.

  2. Everyone should be free to use solar power – as long as they are not subsidized at all. The problem so far is that solar power is subsidized. Will Al Gore ever leave?
