Residents invited to attend solar energy meeting


Indiana residents and business owners will learn how the federal tax credit of 26% has been extended through 2021 and 2022 for installing solar panels on houses, farm structures and places of business during the next Zoom meeting of Solarize East Central Indiana.

The meeting sponsored by Solarize ECI, a grassroots community group affiliated with Solarize Indiana, will take place at 6:30 p.m. June 29. It will include a 30-minute presentation, followed by an hour for questions and answers.

There is no charge to attend, but registration is required. The Zoom link for registration can be found online at or by sending an email request to Carolyn Vann at [email protected] or John Vann at [email protected]. They are co-team leaders of Solarize ECI.

One of the main benefits of working with Solarize ECI and the Indiana Solarize state organization is group pricing that reduces the costs of installing a solar system.

Adding solar panels to structures also permits more energy independence with less exposure to increasing utility bills, Carolyn Vann said. Net metering will be available through June 2022.

Next, adding solar will not increase the owner’s property taxes. The addition of solar, however, has the potential to increase property value, Carolyn said.
