Clean Energy for Boone (CE4B) is a local campaign that makes it easy and affordable for homeowners, businesses, and tax-exempt entities to go solar and invest in energy efficiency. We offer discounted pricing, free energy audits, and local subsidies.

Why Clean Energy for Boone (CE4B)?

CE4B offers discounted pricing and local subsidies for solar and energy efficiency work. We setup educational events and preselect components to offer you the simplest turnkey solution that there is. Heres how it works:

  1. We preselected competitive local contractors
  2. We preselected the best equipment
  3. We offer a variety of financing options
  4. We offer approved solar customers a subsidy of $1,000
  5. We offer solar customers a free energy audit + $500 towards their energy efficiency upgrades
  6. We giveback 5% of the contract price to a local nonprofit and the CE4U organization to keep running local campaigns
