Broward County residents form solar co-op to go solar together, get a discount

By Ben Delman on March 20, 2019

Neighbors in Broward County have formed a solar co-op to save money and make going solar easier, with the help of nonprofit Solar United Neighbors. The group kicked off today with a launch at the Young at Art museum. It is seeking participants and will host several information meetings (details below) to educate the community about solar and the co-op process.

Florida homeowners 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 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.

The League of Women Voters of Broward County, Broward County, The Climate Reality Project, Temple Solel, Friends of TY Park, The CLEO Institute, SACE, Pirani Life, Citizens Climate Lobby Broward, the City of Pompano Beach and SELF are sponsoring the co-op.
