Denver Solar Co-op chooses installer

By Ben Delman on September 19, 2019

The Denver Solar Co-op has selected Sunfinity Renewable Energy to install solar panels for the 50-member group. Co-op members selected Sunfinity Renewable Energy through a competitive bidding process over seven other firms. The group will hold its next public information session October 1st at 7:00pm at the Highland Event Center (2945 Julian Street, Denver, CO 80211) to educate the community about solar and the co-op process – see below for additional sessions. Co-op members are working with the support of the vendor-neutral non-profit Solar United Neighbors.

“It is an honor to be selected because we know the great work Solar United Neighbors has done, and how committed they are to ensure their co-op members have a great experience going solar,” said John Billingsley, Chairman and CEO of Sunfinity Renewable Energy. “We are eager to help these Denver homeowners start enjoying the financial and environmental benefits of going solar and providing them quality work and service at a good price.”

Solar United Neighbors expands access to solar by educating people about the benefits of distributed solar energy, helping them organize group solar installations, and strengthening solar policies and the community of solar supporters. It helps thousands of homeowners go solar each year. The Denver co-op marks the organization’s third group in Colorado. Earlier this year, Solar United Neighbors helped homeowners in the Yampa Valley and Fort Collins go solar which has led to over $1.3 million invested in the industry.

Denver co-op members selected Sunfinity Renewable Energy because of their affordable pricing, strong warranties, and experience.

“I was really impressed with the thorough vetting process of each bid we received,” said co-op member Stacey Decker. “I enjoyed being able to process and evaluate the vast amount of information we received regarding the technology, equipment, options, and company structure in accordance with the priorities expressed by our co-op members.  It was an in-depth but smooth process, and we are confident that Sunfinity will provide both the value and the professionalism that are a top priority for co-op members.”

The Denver co-op is open to new participants for until November 8th. Denver residents interested in joining the co-op can sign up at the co-op web page.

“It will take action at every level to achieve Denver’s goal of 100% renewable electricity by 2030,” said Taylor Moellers, Denver Sustainable Neighborhoods Program Administrator. “We are excited to partner with Solar United Neighbors of Colorado to empower our residents to play a role in building an equitable and affordable clean energy future.”

The solar co-op is free to join and joining the co-op is not a commitment to purchase panels. Sunfinity Renewable Energy will provide each co-op member with an individualized proposal designed for the specific home and based on the group rate. By going solar as a group and choosing a single installer, members can save on the cost of going solar and have the support of fellow group participants and solar experts at Solar United Neighbors.
