Residents in Crawford County forming solar co-op to go solar together, get a discount

By Zach Schalk on June 4, 2018

Neighbors in Crawford County have formed a solar co-op to save money and make going solar easier, while building a network of solar supporters. Common Roots, Increased Economic Opportunity, the Borough of Cambridge Springs, and Solar United Neighbors are the co-op sponsors. The group is seeking participants and will host an information meeting on June 11th at 6pm and on June 25th at 5:30pm to educate the community about solar and the co-op process.

First Information Session

Monday, June 11
6:00 pm – 7:30 pm

Second Information Session

Monday, June 25
5:30 pm – 7:00 pm

Crawford 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 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.
