New solar co-op forms in the Upper Keys to help homeowners go solar

By Ben Delman on February 8, 2018

Neighbors in the Upper Keys have formed a solar co-op to save money and make going solar easier, while building a network of solar supporters. The Upper Keys League of Women Voters is sponsoring the co-op. The group is seeking participants and will host an information meeting Monday, February 26 at Key Largo Public Library to educate the community about solar and the co-op process.

Upper Keys residents above Long Key Bridge interested in joining the co-op can sign up at the co-op web page. The 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.
