Neighbors across the Middle Peninsula have formed a solar co-op to save money and make going solar easier, while building a network of solar supporters. The Hampton Roads Solar Tour Group and VA SUN are the co-op sponsors. The group is seeking members and will host an information meeting September 12 (details below) to educate the community about solar and the co-op process.
Middle Peninsula residents interested in joining the co-op can sign up at the co-op’s web page. Joining the co-op is not a commitment to purchase panels. Once the group is large enough, VA SUN will help the co-op solicit competitive bids from area solar installers.
Co-op members 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 up to 20% off the cost of their system.
