A solar co-op is a group of homeowners that bundle their buying power to secure a volume discount on rooftop solar PV systems. They use free-market principles to solicit competitive bids from area solar installers in order to secure the best price and ensure a quality product.
One organization working in South Florida to help establish solar co-ops is Solar United Neighbors. A new co-op, open to all of Miami-Dade County, launched in April 2023. The sign-up period to join the co-op is now closed, but if you would like to learn more about solar co-ops or if you are interested in joining in the future, you can get more information here.
