The Central Virginia Solar Co-op has selected Sustainable Technology Institute to install solar panels for the 27-member group. Co-op members selected the installer through a competitive bidding process over three other firms. The co-op will be holding an information session on August 30 (details below) to educate the public about solar and recruit additional members.
The co-op is open to new members until October 31. Central Virginia residents interested in joining the co-op can sign up at the co-op web page. Joining the co-op is not a commitment to purchase panels. Each co-op member will be assigned an installer, who will provide him or her with an individualized proposal based on the group pricing. By going solar as a group, each participant generally saves up to 20% off the cost of their system.
