New solar co-op forms in Miami-Dade County

By Ben Delman on June 11, 2018

Neighbors in Miami-Dade 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 participants and will host an information meeting June 23 at the University of Miami to educate the community about solar and the co-op process.

Residents of Miami-Dade County interested in joining the co-op can sign up at the co-op web page. The co-op is free to join. 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 up off the cost of going solar and have the support of fellow group participants and solar experts at Solar United Neighbors.

The League of Women Voters Miami-Dade, Green Corridor, CLEO Institute, University of Miami Sustainability Department, Cushman School, Miami Climate Alliance, and Pinecrest Gardens are some of the partners working with and Solar United Neighbors to organize the co-op.
