Successful Co-ops in the past 

Montgomery County Solar Co-op Member from the 1st roundMontgomery County has hosted two solar co-ops in the past and they were both extremely successful.

Since the inception of the program, we have had over 240 homeowners install solar on their homes! These residents all took advantage of Solar United Neighbors (SUN) Solar Co-op program. Through this process, those residents have spent over $5 million dollars on their installations and increased the amount of solar energy online by 1,966.03 kW…that’s almost 2 MW of power! The chosen installer for these projects was Solar Energy World who was chosen by a group of residents.

What are Solar Co-ops?

Solar Co-ops make installing a solar system easy. Solar United Neighbors brings 50 to 200 neighbors together and support you through the entire process. They stay with you for the long haul so you can maximize the value of your solar investment.

The Solar Co-ops take advantage of a group of homeowners’ 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.

    Well, a city of Rockville is pretty solar as i can say. I have been working as a contactor for a long time in all around DC area and may say that Rockville is one of the greenest cities. I will visit a city hall tomorrow and will participate in your co-op. John Kaelin from Rockville DC.
