PBC Solar Co-Op Selects Wayfare Energy As Installer

The Palm Beach County Solar Co-op invites people to learn more about the program.

The Palm Beach County Solar Co-op has selected Wayfare Energy to install solar panels for the still-growing 39-participant group.

Co-op participants selected Wayfare Energy through a competitive bidding process. The group will hold two additional public information sessions on Dec. 8. The first will be at 10:30 a.m. at the Delray Beach City Library. The second will be at 2 p.m. at the West Palm Beach Library. The sessions will educate the community about solar and the co-op process.

“Wayfare Energy is extremely excited to bring all the benefits of solar energy to Palm Beach County residents and businesses,” according to a statement from the company. “Every day, we work to fulfill the Sunshine State’s promise by providing clean, affordable solar energy to our communities. We are pleased to work with homeowners in our fourth awarded co-op and look forward to meeting all the co-op members in person very soon.”

Solar United Neighbors expands access to solar power by educating Palm Beach County residents about the benefits of distributed solar energy, helping them organize group solar installations, and strengthening Florida’s solar policies and its solar supporters.

Co-op participants selected Wayfare for its competitive pricing, warranties, quality equipment and experience.

“Participating on the selection committee was a great experience,” Linda Blash said. “There were several really good bids, and Solar United Neighbors did an amazing job of interpreting the technical details so we could choose the proposal that best reflected the priorities of the co-op.”

The co-op is open to new participants until Dec. 21. Palm Beach County residents interested in joining the co-op can sign up at www.solarunitedneighbors.org/palmbeach and attend an upcoming information session.

Joining the co-op is not a commitment to purchase panels. Wayfare Energy will provide each co-op participant with an individualized proposal based on the group rate. By going solar as a group and choosing a single installer, participants can save off the cost of going solar and have the support of fellow group participants and solar experts at Solar United Neighbors.
