After a comprehensive and competitive bidding process, LEAP selected two qualified local solar installers for the 2022 Solarize Piedmont campaign. Once you sign up and have the initial satellite assessment completed by LEAP, one of the two installers will be assigned to make a site visit to gather all the information necessary and provide you with a proposal. If you go to contract, the installer will obtain all necessary permits, order materials and equipment, and schedule your installation.
