EDGE Energy selected by 51st State Solar Co-op participants to serve group

By Zach Schalk on March 26, 2018

The 51st State Solar Co-op has selected EDGE Energy to install solar panels for the 55-member group. Co-op participants selected EDGE Energy through a competitive bidding process over two other firms.

Co-op members selected EDGE Energy because of the quality equipment they provide, the care to detail applied to EDGE’s installations and customer interactions, and their confidence in EDGE’s ability to handle a large group of installations.

As a DOEE-funded Solar for All project, the 51st State Solar Co-op is focused on expanding access to solar to households currently unable to afford to cost of installing a system. While the co-op is open to all District residents living in single-family homes no matter their neighborhood or income, eligible low- and moderate-income households can qualify for Solar for All grant funding from DOEE that will cover the cost of going solar.

The co-op is open to new members until May 31. All District 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. EDGE Energy will provide each co-op member with an individualized proposal based on the 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 support of fellow group members and solar experts at Solar United Neighbors.

The group will hold its next public information session Wednesday, March 28 at 7 pm at the Takoma Community Center to educate the community about solar and the co-op process. More details below.
