We were motivated to help the environment and reduce electricity.

Dane and Melissa – Washington, D.C.
Went solar with the Lincoln Park Solar Co-op in 2016
System size: 4.32 kW, 16 solar panels

Why did you decide to go solar?

[We went solar to] help the environment and hopefully reduce our cost for electricity as well.

Why did you decide to go solar with the co-op?

Experts were able to better explain the entire process of going solar as opposed to relying on the solar companies themselves.

Do you have any data on your solar system’s performance?

I do look at the meter every day and there are days where we produce more electricity than we use – especially when the air conditioning isn’t running!

Is there anything else you’d like to add?

Going solar through the co-op was a simple and easy experience – plus I met some very nice folks throughout the process. I highly recommend using a co-op if anyone is interested in adding solar energy to their homes.
