Second solar co-op forms in Palm Beach County

By Ben Delman on September 26, 2018

Neighbors in Palm Beach County have gathered to form a second solar co-op to save money and make going solar easier, while building a network of solar supporters. The group is seeking members and will host two information meetings on Saturday, October 3 at 10:30 a.m. at the Gardens Branch Library and at 2 p.m. at Wellington Public library (details below) to educate the community about solar and the co-op process.

Palm Beach 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.

The League of Women Voters Palm Beach County, Sierra Club Loxahatchee Group, Southern Alliance for Clean Energy, City of West Palm Beach Mayor’s Office of Sustainability, City of Boynton Beach, Citizens’ Climate Lobby, Unitarian Universalist Fellowship of Boca Raton, Audubon Everglades, City of Boca Raton, are the co-op sponsors.
