Why did you decide to go solar?

I’d wanted to go solar for quite a while (to reduce my carbon footprint and save money in the long run) and joining the Solar United Neighbors co-op motivated me to finally do it. It was especially helpful for myself and my neighbors to get competitive bids through the co-op process because we live in a rural area with limited local solar providers. The staff from Solar United Neighbors was very helpful while walking us through the process.

Why did you choose to go solar with Solar United Neighbors?

1) Didn’t have to commit to join. 2) The request for competitive bid proposals with the co-op model was very helpful. 3) The price we paid and the quality of service we obtained was great. 4) The Solar United Neighbors co-op model was easy to participate in and the staff was helpful.

What benefits did you experience going solar with a co-op?

I believe I saved money on a quality system and it was a smooth, well run process.
