Solar Power co-op program to be offered in Sarasota

  • 0

Sarasota, FL - Representatives from the FL House Institute, the League of Women Voters Sarasota and Florida Solar United Neighborhoods (FL SUN) will host a press conference Wednesday morning encouraging Sarasota homeowners looking for a discounted way to add solar power to their homes to sign up for a new solar co-op program.

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 Sarasota County are eligible to participate in the co-op.

A press conference will be held at 10a.m. on Tuesday at the Florida House Institute on Beneva Road.
