Apogee provides technical assistance, education, policy research, and advocacy to advance the energy transition and solutions to the climate crisis.
Apogee is partnering with the Kentucky Solar Energy Society (KYSES), the City of Frankfort, Franklin County Cooperative Extension Office, and Kentucky State University Land Grant Program to organize Solarize Frankfort, a bulk-purchasing program making it easier and less expensive for Frankfort-area residents to install solar.
Solarize Frankfort connects participants with pre-screened solar installers, providing access to bulk-purchase discounts (up to 15% off) for solar PV installations. The campaign’s two solar installation contractors, Pure Power Solar and Wilderness Trace Solar, were selected through a competitive bidding process.
Solarize Frankfort is one of three Solarize campaigns being organized by KYSES in 2023, along with programs in Lexington and Louisville. The 2022 Solar Over Louisville campaign resulted in 92 new solar installations and over 800 KW of installed solar, making it the third-largest solarize campaign in the country.

Educating communities about clean energy, the Energy Transition, and confronting the climate crisis.
Policy Research & Advocacy
Working for policies and programs at the State, local, and utility level to advance clean energy.
We are at a critical time in our struggle to restrain climate change. The Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change warns that global greenhouse gas emissions must peak and begin a rapid decline before the end of this decade. The challenge is immense but we have the tools needed to confront it.
Apogee helps people to understand their options for reducing their energy use, carbon emissions, and environmental impacts, and connects them with the people and resources they need to meet their goals.
