Our Solarize MDI Campaign Just Doubled Solar Capacity on MDI! 


In April when we launched our Solarize MDI campaign with our partner ReVision Energy, Mount Desert Island had a total installed capacity of 646 kW of solar photovoltaics - representing incremental growth over a few decades.  By our deadline of August 15, just four months later, we had secured 76 solar installation contracts with homeowners, businesses, and one municipality totaling 643 kW.  This represents a doubling of the total solar capacity on the island!  And we saved 76 customers over $160,000 on solar installs. Thanks to ReVision, Bar Harbor Bank & Trust, our dedicated ACTT Volunteers, the MDIslander and everyone else who helped make the Solarize MDI the most successful Solarize program in Maine!
