SWFL Solar Co-Op Hosting Informational Events

22 Feb 2023

Have you ever thought about putting solar panels on your roof? 

This is a great time to do it! Together with other local organizations, SCCF is teaming up with nonprofit group Solar United Neighbors (SUN) to bring you the Southwest Florida 2023 Solar Co-op — a free group to help you go solar.

The solar co-op will help area homeowners and small business owners learn about solar together and purchase solar panels at a group rate from a single installer.

Together, co-op members will learn about solar energy and leverage their numbers to get competitive pricing and quality solar installations. After a competitive bidding process facilitated by SUN, a group of volunteers from the co-op will select a solar company to complete the co-op's installations. 

Two free information sessions are planned for March. 

  • March 14, 6:00-7:30 p.m., at All Faiths Unitarian Congregation, 2756 McGregor Blvd., Ft. Myers, FL 33901
  • March 15, 6:00-7:30 p.m, at the Bailey-Matthews National Shell Museum, 3075 Sanibel Captiva Rd., Sanibel, FL 33957

(Note: no wheelchair access due to hurricane damage.)

Joining a co-op does not obligate members to purchase solar or chargers. Instead, each member will have the option to individually purchase panels and electric vehicle chargers based on the installer's group rate.
