About Northern Dutchess

Welcome to Solarize Northern Dutchess!
This campaign is open to all residents and local business owners in all of Dutchess County, NY.


Our Solarize Northern Dutchess Campaign launched in March and runs through June 2016.


Come to one of our events to meet our volunteer team, our selected residential and commercial installers and learn if solar is right for you!
Our next event is a Solar Open House at the home of George Kustas, one of our Solar Ambassadors. Direct Energy Solar, who installed the system, will be there to answer questions. The event is on Sunday, June 5th from 12PM-2PM at 37 Bancroft Rd, Poughkeepsie, NY 12601.

As a community based project, local volunteers “power” Solarize Northern Dutchess. By installing solar on your home or business with Solarize, you receive a Solarize discount that is only offered by our selected solar installers for a limited time.

You must register for a free site assessment by June 30th, 2016
