Phase 3: Contractor Selection, Solar Installation

Publicize the Project

Other than get the go-ahead to connect to the grid and turn your system on, the most exciting part about a solar project may be getting to talk about it. Reaching out to local news organizations (newspapers, television, radio and online media) is a great starting point to publicize your installation. For example, host a ribbon-cutting ceremony a feature your leadership, local government leadership, your contractor and, if appropriate, your funder.

Other than get the go-ahead to connect to the grid and turn your system on, the most exciting part about a solar project may be getting to talk about it. Reaching out to local news organizations (newspapers, television, radio and online media) is a great starting point to publicize the installation. Often they are looking to tell local news stories that connect with their audiences. Consider hosting a ribbon-cutting ceremony following the installation and include key personnel from the nonprofit, local politicians, the contractor and the funder, if appropriate.
