Northern Arizona Solar Co-op

Open to residents and businesses in Flagstaff, Sedona, and rural Coconino County.

87 members of 150 member goal

Registration closes on January 26, 2024

Imagine walking into a solar company’s office with 50 or 100 of your neighbors and saying, “We all want to get solar. What kind of deal can you give us?”

That’s a solar co-op!

In fact, it’s even better than that. In addition to competitive pricing on solar panels, you get:

  • Info to help you understand solar. Our vendor-neutral solar experts are here to help you understand how solar works and make the best decision for your energy needs.
  • A direct line to ask specific questions. You can call or email us anytime you need help. We’ll be here now and long after you install solar.
  • A team that solicits and reviews proposals from solar companies. First, Solar United Neighbors requests bids on your behalf. Then, a committee of your fellow co-op members meet to assess the pros and cons and select the best installer for the group. (Note: If that sounds interesting to you, you’re also welcome to join the selection committee!)
  • Community. You’ll join the growing solar movement. You’ll have a built-in network of support and inspiration from others who, like you, are taking a stand for energy freedom and advancing the clean energy economy.
  • A bigger impact! Going solar creates jobs, and puts energy production and its benefits back in the hands of the people and contributes to cleaner air and water for everyone. A solar co-op amplifies those outcomes exponentially.

Northern Arizona Solar Co-op selects Icon Power to serve group

Friday, December 22, 2023

The Northern Arizona Solar Co-op has selected Icon Power to install solar panels for the 60 (and growing) member group. Co-op members chose Icon Power through a competitive bidding process over four other firms.

Co-op members selected Icon Power because of their competitive pricing, large variety of equipment options, strong warranties, and experience in the area.

The co-op is open to new members until January 26, 2024. Flagstaff, Sedona, and rural Coconino County residents interested in joining the co-op can sign up here. The solar co-op is free to join and joining is not a commitment to purchase panels.

Icon Power will provide each co-op member with an individualized proposal based on the group rate. By going solar as a group and choosing a single installer, members can save on the cost of going solar and have the support of fellow group members, as well as solar experts at Solar United Neighbors.
