Neighbors in Howard County have formed a solar co-op to save money and make going solar easier with the support of Solar Untied Neighbors, while building a network of solar supporters. The Howard County Government and First Presbyterian Church of Howard County are the co-op sponsors. The group is seeking participants and will host an information meeting on Tuesday, September 18 at 6 pm at the First Presbyterian Church of Howard County to educate the community about solar and the co-op process.
After facilitating several solar co-ops in the surrounding area, this will be the first co-op focused on Howard County.
Howard County residents interested in joining the co-op can sign up at the co-op website: www.SolarUnitedNeighbors.org/Howard. 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 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.
