Interested in going solar? It can be easier and less expensive by joining a solar co-op!
Cuyahoga County is working with Solar United Neighbors, a national non-profit that brings homeowners together into a group, or co-op, and provides unbiased, installer-neutral support through each stage in the process of going solar. Their experienced team ensures you understand how solar works, how it can be financed, and how it can be installed on your home.
In partnership with Solar United Neighbors, the Department of Sustainability will discuss the 30 percent Federal Solar Tax Credit, how to find out if your home is right for solar, and how to use Cuyahoga County’s low-interest HELP Loan Program to purchase a solar system. Meetings will also discuss how to solve technical issues, information on typical industry warranties and the cost savings involved in forming a buyer’s co-op to solicit bids from installers.
Co-ops take advantage of the group’s bulk-purchasing power to get discounted pricing and a quality installation. Volunteer co-op participants 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.
If you're interested in joining the co-op or have questions for the experts, please be sure to attend a meeting.
