Neighbors in Cecil County have formed a solar co-op to save money and make going solar easier, while building a network of solar supporters. The group is seeking members and will host two information meetings to educate the community about solar and the co-op process.
September 29, 7 p.m.
North East Town Hall
106 S Main St, North East, MD 21901
October 12, 7 p.m.
St. Mary Anne’s Church
315 S Main St, North East, MD 21901
Cecil County residents interested in joining the co-op can sign up at the co-op website. Joining the co-op is not a commitment to purchase panels. Once the group is large enough, MD SUN 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, each participant generally saves up to 20% off the cost of their system.
