Solarize Archuleta is intent on finding 15 local homeowners who want to save money by helping the environment. The group will host a public meeting between 4:30 and 6:30 p.m. on Monday, Feb. 29, at Riff Raff Brewing to explain how residents can reap this win-win bonanza.

Gary Frederick, Solarize Archuleta steering committee chairman, said the program follows a model previously used by Solarize La Plata, which recruited 101 homes in our neighboring county to go solar during 2014. Solarize Archuleta has already obtained participation by 15 county residents and has a goal of reaching a total of 30 by the end of next month, March 31.
