Our Mission

  • Our mission is to bring affordable solar power to the people of North Carolina. We believe this is the best way to bring lower energy costs, self-reliance, and energy independence in a way that protects our environment and lifestyle for future generations.
  • Our Solarize campaigns in 2014 resulted in new solar installations on 90 homes and small businesses across Orange County. This is equivalent to ten million pounds of coal that will never be dug up and burned.
  • Solarize Orange County is a constellation of four Solarize campaigns in parallel -- Solarize Chapel Hill, Solarize Hillsborough, Solarize Carrboro, and Solarize Orange County. NextClimate is the organizing non-profit.
