About Empower SLC Solar

EmpowerSLC Solar is a community-led effort to coordinate interested homeowners across Salt Lake County to facilitate a group-purchase of residential solar PV systems. EmpowerSLC Solar helps participants go solar at a lower cost, makes going solar simple, generates clean electricity, and reduces carbon emissions.

EmpowerSLC Solar is a partnership between Project Manager Utah Clean Energy, Salt Lake community College, and a volunteer Steering Committee of community members.

EmpowerSLC Solar is Bringing You:

  • A substantial discount on solar: Up to 20% off for a typical installation, made possible through the facilitation of a supplier discount.
  • Simplified and streamlined solar installation process: We’ve done the heavy lifting, so you don’t have to. You’ll have access to a simplified solar process, and a local clean energy advocacy group is on hand to provide you with expert information about solar.
  • The community steering committee pre-screened and selected a trusted local installer through a competitive bidding process.

How Does it Work?

Our community steering committee has selected an installer through a rigorous vetting process to select an installer offering competitive prices and quality service.

Head to EmpowerSLC Solar.org to complete our Solar Eligibility Survey, EmpowerSLC Solar will send your contact information to the selected installer, Auric Energy, who will then reach out to schedule a site visit. During the site visit, the installer will ensure you are a good candidate for solar by checking your roof, electricity usage, and home energy efficiency. You will then receive a quote a solar installation for your home. If you wish to proceed, your next step is to sign a contract with the installer authorizing the installation.
