First New Jersey solar co-op launches in Allentown

By Ben Delman on February 20, 2018

Neighbors in Allentown 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 participants and will host an information meeting Wednesday, February 28 (details below) to educate the community about solar and the co-op process.

Allentown residents interested in joining the co-op can sign up at the co-op web page. The co-op is free to join and joining the co-op 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.

Solar United Neighbors is actively seeking to grow more co-ops across the state. It has set up a web page where New Jersey homeowners interested in going solar can provide input on where the organization’s next co-op should launch.
