Miami-Dade solar co-op launches to help county employees & homeowners go solar

By Ben Delman on January 23, 2019

Today Solar United Neighbors and the Miami-Dade County announced the launch of solar co-op in Miami-Dade County open to all Miami-Dade homeowners but with a particular focus on helping county employees go solar. The group is seeking participants and will host two information meetings on Thursday, January 24 at 12 p.m. and 1 p.m. at the Stephen P. Clark Center to educate the community about solar and the co-op process.

Miami-Dade residents interested in joining the co-op can sign up at the co-op web page: The solar 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.

The League of Women Voters Miami-Dade, Green Corridor, Tropical Audubon, Miami-Dade County, CLEO Institute, Catalyst Miami, Miami Climate Alliance, Earth Ethics Institute, Sierra Club, Surfrider Foundation, Citizens Climate Lobby, Dream in Green and Rise Up Florida are also partnering to help grow the solar co-op.
