Appalachian Ohio Solar and EV Charger Co-op
What is a solar co-op?
We’re bringing homeowners and small businesses interested in installing solar and/or electric vehicle chargers together in a group, or co-op. Co-op participants join the group at no obligation to receive discounted pricing and unbiased, installer-neutral support throughout the process. Our experienced team ensures you understand the basics of installing solar and EV charging as well as receive a competitive proposal from a qualified installer.
Homeowners or businesses participating in the Appalachian Ohio and EV Charger Co-op have the option of installing solar panels, a level 2 electric vehicle charger, or both. Watch the videos below to learn more about our solar co-op process and its benefits, or view our FAQs.
Join the Appalachian Ohio Solar and EV Charger Co-op to:
- Go solar on your home or business;
- Or install a level 2 EV charger;
- Or install both solar and a level 2 EV charger
The co-op is open to homeowners and businesses throughout southeast Ohio.

How much does solar cost?
Ohio residents are eligible for Ohio’s ECO-Link program. The Energy Conservation for Ohioans Program, or ECO-Link, offers a reduced interest rate to homeowners installing renewable energy or making energy efficiency upgrades to their homes. This program will help homeowners obtain reduced rate financing. Homeowners can receive up to a three percent interest rate reduction on bank loans for up to seven years.
The state treasurer’s office purchases an investment made by a bank at a discounted price. This purchase is made on behalf of the homeowner who is part of the ECO-link program. The lender then gives the discounted rate to the homeowner through a bank loan. Once the homeowner pays off the loan, the bank returns the investment to the treasurer.Join our co-op
