Palm Beach 2024 Solar Co-op

Residents and small businesses of Palm Beach County are eligible to join this co-op.

4 members of 150 member goal

Registration closes on September 6, 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.

Life-Altering Solar Power Choices from Local Solar Companies 

Life-threatening heat and humidity are not exaggerations when you live in Palm Beach. And these issues are even more taxing on senior citizens, who are likely to have less financial means to handle the ever-growing cost of electricity to keep their homes comfortable and safe. But sadly, this group is also more likely to suffer from breathing and heat-related health concerns, making them very vulnerable. That is why finding the right solar company to provide reasonably priced energy is a life-changing event for many Palm Beach residents. But to make this significant discovery a reality for many in the community, they will require the help of the skilled team at Solar United Neighbors and a tremendous solar co-op to make it happen.

Solar United Neighbors Is Here To Provide Unbiased Guidance And Help Finding That Ideal Solar Company

Exploring new technology can be very stressful when you search for solutions that will help you save money, live more comfortably, and take steps that will help to protect the planet for future generations. It sounds like a huge responsibility and one that requires some expert assistance. Sadly, many people who are researching solar companies find that the information they gather is more about advertising a specific company, product, or service than general education about the opportunities that can provide the clean and affordable power they want and need.

Fortunately, Solar Untied Neighbors is not affiliated with any company or brand of equipment. Instead, we are here to help communities and residents like those in Palm Beach learn about solar options that are good for them and the environment. Our experienced staff is ready to answer your questions and offer our professional evaluation of solar possibilities that you could be considering. In addition, we want to introduce everyone to the opportunity to become a part of a solar co-op. It lets everyone become a part of the solar movement, even if you are not able to have solar equipment installed at your current home or business. If you are ready to learn and benefit from affordable power that is safe for the planet, we are ready to share our knowledge with you!

Save Money with a Solar Co-op

If you want to save money on the cost of going solar and benefit from reduced utility costs, you can join a solar co-op. Bring your friends and neighbors onboard and work together as a team. As part of a solar co-op, you can get the best bids for installation of solar panels. Solar United is here to help.

Find the Best Installer at the Best Price

Solar companies have to manage costs when bidding for an installation project. Recruiting homeowners to go solar and answering questions about the benefits of solar power can add to their costs. When they work with a co-op, they can provide a better bid because they don’t have to factor in these costs.

A committee in the solar co-op will evaluate bids and choose the most competitive one based on the needs of the group. Solar United works with the committee to answer questions and guide them in their decision making.

Solar Installation with Less Cost and Stress

Because the committee takes care of the legwork, you don’t have to handle all the details of installation. We work with the group on local policies regarding solar power, help you find financing, and educate members on solar energy. You don’t have to pay to be part of the co-op, but you can enjoy the benefits.

Hello and thank you for checking out the solar co-op!

Whether you’re just curious about solar, or you’re ready to make the switch now, I’m here to help. I can answer any questions you have about solar. I’ll give you installer-neutral guidance to help you make an informed, confident decision about going solar.

I have more than a decade of experience in environmental and field education, including work for various non-profit organizations and government agencies. I work throughout South Florida, helping communities go solar, join together, and fight for energy rights. Solar co-ops are a big part of this work!

I love seeing fellow Floridians harvesting sunshine to lower their electric bills and build a clean, equitable energy system in their communities!
