A local organization is launching what they say will be the largest solar panel installation campaign in the state of New York.
Solarize Syracuse, a grassroots organization focused on solar energy that its latest campaign goal is to help install 300 solar-energy systems across Central New York.
Last year, the group was able to double the number of residential solar-energy systems in its project area, which included the Syracuse and the towns of DeWitt, Manlius and Onondaga. They helped organize the installation of 70 systems in 2014 compared to 20 the year before, according to its website.
This year, the program is expanding to include all of Onondaga County, as well as Cayuga, Cortland, Madison and Oswego counties!
