Upper Piedmont residents form solar co-op to go solar together, get a discount

By SUN Admin on May 9, 2017

Neighbors in Winchester and Loudoun, Fauquier, Clarke, Warren, and Rappahannock Counties have formed a solar co-op to save money and make going solar easier, while building a network of solar supporters. The James Madison Center for Wind Energy, Farm to Table Solutions, Powered by Facts, and VA SUN are the co-op sponsors. Information session details below.

Upper Piedmont residents interested in joining the co-op can sign up here. 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.
