Neighbors in Jacksonville Beach and Neptune Beach 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 Solar United Neighbors. The group is seeking members and will host an information meeting Tuesday, July 16, 5:30 p.m., Neptune House, 510 Florida Boulevard Neptune Beach to educate the community about solar and the co-op process.
Neptune and Jacksonville Beach residents interested in joining the co-op can sign up at solarunitedneighbors.org/beachesbusiness. The solar co-op is free to join and 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 members 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, members can save off the cost of going solar and have the guidance from the experts at Solar United Neighbors.
