Staff of the nonprofit Local Energy Alliance Program (LEAP) will be in Fredericksburg May 19 to introduce Solarize, a renewable energy initiative that lowers the costs of making solar energy available for homes and businesses. The free informational event is at 6:30 p.m. at the University of Mary Washington Jepson Alumni Executive Center, 1119 Hanover St., Fredericksburg.

The Fredericksburg Climate, Environment and Readiness (CLEAR) Plan executive group is hosting the meeting. The CLEAR initiative was created as a result of the UMW Transformation 20/20 project. “CLEAR is comprised of three interrelated and overlapping components to encourage smart growth, said Rebecca Rubin, president of Fredericksburg based Marstel Day. “CLEAR is a both a road map and action plan for preserving and improving the natural environment.”

“Participation in the Solarize renewable energy initiative will help bring solar power to our region, increase the resilience of our region, support our local workforce, lower the costs of installing solar and increase energy independence,” CLEAR said in its event invitation.

LEAP administers the program, vets contractors and helps obtain discounted fixed pricing.
