Solar Co-Op Offers Virtual Information Sessions

January 25, 2023

Imagine walking into a solar company’s office with 100 of your neighbors and saying, “We all want to get solar. What kind of deal can you give us?” That’s what the new solar co-op for Lee and Collier Counties can do for you. There are still about 70 slots open (out of 100) for sign-up by April 30. 

Launched last week, the Southwest Florida Co-Op is part of Solar United Network (SUN), which has helped more than 10,000 households go solar in the Sunshine State, along with many more across the nation. SCCF is one of 12 partners helping to get the word out about this rare opportunity to let the sun power your home or small business. 

If you’d like to learn more about its benefits, sign up for one of SUN’s Solar 101 virtual seminars on Jan. 30 or Feb. 28 at 6 p.m. You’ll learn about the technology, economics, financing, and more. Click here to sign up.

The co-op is free to join and members are not obligated to buy solar panels. Co-op members get:

~A free review of your roof to see if solar panels will work for you

~One-on-one support for all your questions about going solar

~An individualized proposal for solar at a bulk rate

This is the second time a Southwest Florida co-op has been offered. The first one was in 2020, when 93 households signed on in Lee and Collier counties.
