Columbia Solar Information Session

Columbia Solar Info Session

Join the Columbia Association for an information session to learn more about the basics of solar! Neighbors in Howard County are going solar as a group and getting a discount. Based on the same principle as buying in bulk, homeowners will save 20% off the standard cost of a solar system.

The Columbia Association has partnered with Retrofit Baltimore to make it easy and affordable for residents to go solar. As a non-profit community resource, Retrofit Baltimore serves as your advocate and guides you through each step of the process. Your Energy Advisor will offer personalized assistance, answer questions, and ensure that you receive quality service from a vetted and screened contractor.
