Interested in Joining a Neighborhood Bulk Solar Purchase?
We need your help! We’re trying to drum up interest in our neighborhood solar bulk purchases, but need help getting the word out. Could everyone forward the message below to neighborhood listserves, ANCs, Facebook, and friends and family? DC has an incredible solar market and we want to help take as many people solar as possible. Please share!!
Neighbors going solar: Join us!
If you’ve ever wanted to go solar but weren’t sure where to start, now is your chance! Neighborhoods throughout the District are organizing neighborhood solar bulk purchases and saving 20-30% off the cost of solar. Just like buying in bulk at Costco, going solar as a group allows you to save money and get support from the group throughout the process.
Each neighborhood uses a competitive bidding process to select a single installer to complete all of the projects. Homeowners sign an individual contract with the installer, but everyone receives the bulk discount.
The neighborhoods are working with nonprofit DC Solar United Neighborhoods (DC SUN), who serves as a consumer advocate for DC residents going solar. DC SUN is completely neutral and they don’t represent the interest of any company. Rather, they help you through the process of going solar. DC SUN’s mission is to make solar accessible and affordable for everyone in the District.
