Beaver & Butler County residents form solar co-op to go solar together, get a discount

By Nick Seymour on March 13, 2019

Neighbors in both Beaver and Butler Counties, Pa., have formed a solar co-op to save money and make going solar easier, while also building a network of solar supporters. The League of Women Voters of Pennsylvania, Riverwise, and Solar United Neighbors of Pennsylvania are the co-op sponsors. The group is seeking participants and will host its first information meeting on Saturday, March 30 (details below) to educate the community about solar and the co-op process.

Residents in Beaver and Butler Counties interested in joining the co-op can sign up at the co-op web page. 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 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.
