New co-op launches in Palm Beach County

By Ben Delman on November 1, 2017

Neighbors in Palm Beach County 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 members and will host an information meeting on Wednesday, November 15 at 6 p.m. at the Boynton Beach City Library (details below) to educate the community about solar and the co-op process.

Palm Beach County residents interested in joining the co-op can sign up at the co-op website. 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 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 off the cost of going solar and have the guidance from the experts at Solar United Neighbors.

The League of Women Voters Palm Beach County, Sierra Club Loxahatchee Group, Southern Alliance for Clean Energy, City of West Palm Beach Mayor’s Office of Sustainability, Citizens’ Climate Lobby, Unitarian Universalist Fellowship of Boca Raton, and Solar United Neighbors are the co-op sponsors.
