Solar for All Co-op

What is a solar co-op?

We bring homeowners together into a group, or co-op. We provide unbiased, installer neutral support to co-op participants through each state of the process of going solar. Our experienced team ensures you understand how solar works, how it can be financed, and how it can be installed on your home.

Co-ops take advantage of the group’s bulk-purchasing power to get discounted pricing and a quality installation. Volunteer co-op members choose an installer on behalf of the entire group through an open and competitive bidding process. The selected installer provides co-op participants a personalized proposal for their consideration.

Watch the video below to learn about how solar co-ops work and what the benefits of going solar with our co-op, or view our FAQs.

The Solar for All co-op will be open to all District residents, regardless of income levels.  With support from The Department of Energy and Environment (DOEE), the co-op will also focus on expanding solar access to low-income homeowners and assist the District’s Solar for All initiative.  Low to moderate income households may qualify for a District grant that will cover their solar array.  The array covered by the grant will offset up to 50% of the household’s energy usage.
