Local business giving away a solar installation




Both green|spaces and Tennessee Solar Solutions are celebrating 10 year anniversaries in 2017. To celebrate the occasions, Tennessee Solar Solutions is donating a solar installation valued at $20,000 that will be raffled as a fundraiser for green|spaces.

Only 500 tickets will be sold. Tickets may be purchased for $100. The proceeds will go to supporting green|spaces’ mission to advance the sustainability of living, working and building in Chattanooga and the surrounding region.

“We’ve been working with green|spaces ourselves since our company was founded,” says Anthony Roden, founder and president of Tennessee Solar Solutions. “We couldn’t think of a better way to celebrate than to donate this solar installation, which has the potential to not only raise a lot of money to further green|spaces’ mission but to also help save one lucky person a lot money and make a difference environmentally.”

“Solar energy is something we encourage and support, and Tennessee Solar Solutions has been a wonderful partner over the years,” says Michael Walton, executive director of green|spaces. “Funds raised through the raffle will be used to support programs like Empower. Since 2014, our Empower Program has helped over 1,000 low income residents identify simple low- and no-cost ways to reduce energy bills.”

Some homes that are highly shaded or face the wrong direction might not be a good fit for a solar energy system. If someone knows their home is not a good fit for solar but still wants to contribute to green|spaces, they can purchase a supporter ticket. If the supporter ticket is drawn as the winning ticket, the solar energy system will be given to a low-income family served by green|spaces’ Empower Program.

Green|spaces is also offering a Schneider Electric EV Link Charging Station as a second-place prize.
