Catoctin Creek completes major solar installation

Catoctin Creek Distillery owner Scott Harris stands on the roof of his Purcellville business where 158 solar panels have been installed on the roof, covering almost 6,000 square feet.

Solarize NOVA has returned to Loudoun County.

Now through Aug. 31, Loudoun residents and business owners can utilize Solarize NOVA to learn more about solar power options specific to their property and to take advantage of streamlined installation and financing processes.

In addition to free home energy assessments, the program also offers discounted pricing on solar panels and electric vehicle chargers and will connect participants with information on the federal tax credit and local incentives.

Anyone interested in learning more about solar power is encouraged to attend one of two upcoming virtual information sessions about the Solarize NOVA program. The sessions will be held July 30 from 4-5 p.m. and Aug. 18 from 11 a.m. to noon. Learn more at

Solarize NOVA is sponsored by the Local Energy Alliance Program in partnership with the Northern Virginia Regional Commission and participating municipal governments, including Loudoun County.

Information about obtaining the proper permits for installing either a residential or commercial solar photovoltaic system in Loudoun is available at

Wish it were possible to justify this financially for most homes. Tax incentives are already reduced and will be gone soon.
