Together We Can

Solarize Your Community

Residents and businesses of Thurston, Mason, Pierce, and Lewis Counties can access solar at prices below market rates, thanks to the Solarize group-purchasing program.

Our 2022 Solarize campaign is at capacity and no longer open for enrollment. If you're already a participant, you have until August 1st to contract your project.

Join our new community solar project!

What Is Solarize?

Solarize is a group purchasing model used throughout the country to reduce costs and simplify the solar installation process.

Combining demand saves local solar installers time and energy, and allows them to purchase equipment in bulk - saving you money.

Our Solarize Contractors

Olympia Community Solar conducted a competitive contractor selection process to vet and evaluate solar installers for the job.

Five contractors have been selected for the campaign:

Our team worked to get all four partners to agree on the same pricing, equipment, and sales standards to ensure our customers are guaranteed good cost and good equipment.

Each solarize participant will be assigned to a partner installer upon their entry into the campaign. If you have a preference for an installer, please indicate it on your submission form.


We encourage customers to seek competing solar quotes! However, if you seek a competing quote from a partner installer you most likely will get the same price. 

Capacity and service regions vary based on installer.
