Alachua County Solar Co-Op to Bring Discounts

Neighbors in Alachua County have formed a solar co-op to save money and make going solar easier, while building a network of solar supporters. There will be an information session held at 7 p.m., January 24, at the Millhopper Branch Library.


League of Women Voters of Alachua County, The Sustainable Design Group, Unitarian Universalist Church of Gainesville, Living Arts Meta Program, Sierra Club Suwannee-St. Johns Group, Hands On Gainesville, Ygrene and Solar United Neighbors are all co-op sponsors.


Co-op participants will select a single company to complete all of the installations, and then have the option to purchase panels individually based on the installer’s group rate. By going solar as a group and choosing a single installer, participants can save up off the cost of going solar and have the support of fellow group participants and solar experts at Solar United Neighbors.


The solar co-op is free to join and not a commitment to purchase panels. Once the group is large enough, Solar United Neighbors will help the co-op solicit competitive bids from area solar installers.


Location: 3145 NW 43rd St., Meeting Room A, Gainesville. RSVP to For more information, call Ben Delman at 202-888-3602 or visit
