Upper Ohio Valley Solar Co-op

What is a solar co-op?

We bring homeowners together into a group, or co-op. We provide unbiased, installer-neutral support to co-op participants through each stage of the process of going solar. Our experienced team ensures you understand how solar works, how it can be financed, and how it can be installed on your home.

Co-ops take advantage of the group’s bulk-purchasing power to get discounted pricing and a quality installation. Volunteer co-op members choose an installer on behalf of the entire group through an open and competitive bidding process. The selected installer provides co-op participants a personalized proposal for their consideration.

Watch the video below to learn more about how solar co-ops work and the benefits of going solar with our co-op, or view our FAQs.

Join our co-op



The Upper Ohio Valley Solar Co-op is open to residents of West Virginia’s Northern Panhandle and bordering counties in Ohio and Pennsylvania.

The Upper Ohio Valley Solar Co-op is a combined effort of the West Virginia, Ohio, and Pennsylvania programs of Solar United Neighbors. If you’re a resident of Ohio or Pennsylvania, please sign up on your state specific co-op page.
