What is the ICLEI Solar Marketplace?
ICLEI USA is a proud partner of the EnergySage Solar Marketplace, an online platform that helps consumers research and shop for solar energy systems. ICLEI and EnergySage have developed a solution that makes it fun and effective for municipalities to promote solar in their community. The Solar Marketplace was developed with funding and support from the U.S. Department of Energy through the SunShot Initiative, a program that works to make solar more accessible and affordable to more people!
