Get Ready, the Capital Area Solar Co-op is BACK!

With Round 2, Solar United Neighbors (SUN) continues to work with over a dozen local jurisdictions and organizations around the Capital Area to help residents put solar panels on their homes.

By joining the #CapitalAreaSolarCoop, you will join neighbors in DC, Maryland, and Virginia in the quest to lower your energy costs, become energy independent, and participate in the renewable revolution.

Round 2 launched on Friday, April 1, 2022 and will run until Tuesday, August 30, 2022 – during that time, we will have virtual info sessions and in person events to help answer all your solar questions. 

How to Learn More

Information meetings are planned by Zoom webinar for:

What is a Solar Co-op? 

A solar co-op is a group of property owners who use their combined buying power to save money going solar. We’ve helped thousands of people go solar in hundreds of co-ops across the country. If we don’t have an active program in your area, we can also help you go solar on your own.

Solar co-ops are member driven and free to join. You are never charged by Solar United Neighbors for participating in a solar co-op. As a solar co-op member, you will receive a personalized bid from a solar installer selected by the group. At that time, you can decide whether to move forward with your solar installation.

      Thank you for the inquiry – everyone who lives in and around the Capital Area is able to participate in this solar co-op and that includes you! Please feel free to sign up for any of the Maryland virtual informational sessions to learn more.

    What type of PEPCO Meter Socket is needed for a new whole house residential solar system? Thank you!

    Will the coop assist a retirement community to acquire solar panels?

    1. Larissa Johnson says:

      While the Co-op is meant for single family homes and small businesses, the Montgomery County Green Bank would be the best bet for your retirement community: https://mcgreenbank.org/Renewable-Energy-Financing/
