Homeowners in Mahtomedi forming solar co-op to go solar together, get a discount

By Ben Delman on May 25, 2018

Neighbors in Mahtomedi, White Bear Lake, and their surrounding cities have formed a solar co-op to save money and make going solar easier, while building a network of solar supporters. Conversation Minnesota and Mahtomedi Area Green Initiative are the solar co-op sponsors. The group is seeking participants and will host an information meeting May 31, at the Mahtomedi District Education Center, to educate the community about solar and the solar co-op process.

Residents of Mahtomedi, White Bear Lake, and the surrounding cities interested in joining the solar co-op can sign up at the co-op web page. Joining the solar co-op is not a commitment to purchase panels. Once the group is large enough, Solar United Neighbors will help the solar co-op solicit competitive bids from area solar installers.

Solar 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.
