Rappahannock County residents looking to form solar co-op

Residents in Rappahannock County are exploring an opportunity to save money on the cost of solar by joining their neighbors in a solar co-op. Sponsored by the Rappahannock League for Environmental Protection and VA SUN, members can save up to 20% off the cost of installation by joining the co-op.

The co-op is seeking 20-30 members to join the group. Once the co-op reaches critical mass, VA SUN will help the co-op solicit competitive bids from area solar installers. The co-op then selects a single company to complete all of the installations. Co-op members are not obligated to purchase panels until they agree to do so by accepting an individualized proposal from the selected installer.  In addition to the group discount, co-op members also have the support of their fellow members and VA SUN throughout the process.

The co-op will hold an info session to explain the benefits of going solar with a group. The session will be held Sunday, April 26 at 2pm at the Theatre at Washington, 291 Gay St, Washington, Virginia. For more information, email VA SUN Program Director, Aaron Sutch.
