The Greater Arlington Solar Co-op has selected Sigora Solar and Independent Solar Solutions to install solar panels for the 83-member group. Co-op members selected both installers through a competitive bidding process over eight other firms. Co-op members are working with non-profit VA SUN to learn about solar technology and the process of going solar
The co-op is open to new members until October 1. Arlington, Alexandria, and Fairfax 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. The installers 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 up to 20% off the cost of their system.
