Neighbors in Highlands County have formed a solar co-op to save money and make going solar easier, while building a network of solar supporters with the help of nonprofit Solar United Neighbors. The Highlands County NAACP and Highlands County Audubon are sponsoring the solar co-op. The group is seeking members and will host an information meeting on April 27 at the Board of County Commissioners Office to educate the community about solar and the co-op process.
Highlands County residents interested in joining the co-op can sign up at the co-op web page. The co-op is free to join. Joining the co-op is not a commitment to purchase panels. Once the group is large enough, Solar United Neighbors will help the co-op solicit competitive bids from area solar installers.
Co-op participants will select a single company to complete all of the installations. They will then have the option to purchase panels individually based on the installer’s group rate. By going solar as a group and choosing a single installer, participants can save off the cost of going solar and have the guidance from the experts at Solar United Neighbors.
