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.

How does a co-op work?
How much does solar cost? How much can you save?
*Example pricing only. Actual system size will vary. Modeling assumptions: APS customer consuming 12,945kWh/yr; savings estimates summarize savings on TOU-E 4pm-7pm Weekdays price plan with solar and R-1 Large plan before solar; 1,724 yearly kWh production per 1kW of solar; 180 degrees of azimuth; 20 degrees of tilt; 0.5%/yr system degradation rate; 2%/yr utility price escalation rate.
**Example pricing only. Actual cost depends on system size, interest rate, credit score, & other factors. Prices do not include incentives besides the 30% federal income tax credit and $1,000 state income tax credit. Monthly electric savings reflect savings in year one. Savings will grow each year as the cost of the price of electricity from the utility increases.
