Orange County homeowners are encouraged to attend solar co-op informational sessions on September 26 and 27. Homeowners in Orange County are forming a solar co-op and co-op members will use their group buying power to get a discounted price for solar panels. The effort is supported by Orange County Mayor Teresa Jacobs, Orange County Government, the League of Women Voters of Florida and Florida Solar United Neighborhoods (FL SUN).
Solar co-ops provide bulk discounts – up to 20 percent – for a group of homeowners who are interested in purchasing solar panels. As part of a solar co-op, citizens benefit from the educational process and each participant signs his or her own contract with the installer, and everyone gets the discount. All homeowners who reside in Orange County are eligible to participate in the co-op.
Joining the co-op does not obligate members to purchase panels. After the co-op receives bids from solar installers in the area, members will select one or two companies to perform the installations at a group discount. So far, more than 300 members have joined the co-op.
The closest meeting to Apopka is on Monday, September 26th at 6:00 PM at West Orange High School (1625 Beulah Road, Winter Garden, FL 34787).
