[ARCHIVED] Localities, Solar United Neighbors Launch Greater Roanoke Solar Co-op

Roanoke, VA – Localities in the Roanoke area, along with Solar United Neighbors, have formed the Greater Roanoke Solar Co-Op to save money and make going solar easier, while building a network of solar supporters. The Co-Op is co-sponsored by the City of Roanoke Sustainability Office, Botetourt County, Roanoke County, the City of Salem, Virginia Clean Cities, and Solar United Neighbors. The public is invited to attend an information session about the Co-Op on Tuesday, March 6, at 6:30 p.m. at the Noel C. Taylor Municipal Building located at 215 Church Ave. SW, in Room 450.

By going solar together as a group, the Co-Op gets a discount through its bulk purchasing power. The group uses a competitive bidding process and selects a single company chosen by the Co-Op to install systems on participants’ homes. Each participant signs his or her own contract at the group discount. Solar United Neighbors of Virginia works with participants to educate them about solar and acts as a consumer advocate throughout the process.

Citizens are invited to join the Greater Roanoke Solar Co-Op on its website and like them on Facebook!
