The Palm Beach Solar Co-op has selected Goldin Solar to install solar panels for the group of more than 60 people. Co-op members selected Goldin Solar through a competitive bidding process. The group is open to new members through the end of May.
“It’s an honor to be selected to serve the co-op,” said Daren Goldin, owner of Goldin Solar. “We know the co-op selection process is thorough and considers all aspects of an installer. We’re excited to work with co-op members to help them go solar.”
The co-op is free to join and open to homeowners and business owners in Palm Beach County. Together, co-op members will learn about solar energy and leverage bulk purchasing to ensure competitive pricing and quality solar installations. “Going solar with the co-op was a no-brainer,” said Joel Jevotovky, who went solar with a co-op in 2018. “I worked with my neighbors to learn about solar energy and had the invaluable expert support of Solar United Neighbors along the way. Going solar means we’re saving money while reducing stress on the electric grid and greenhouse gas emissions.”
The Palm Beach Solar Co-op is open to new members through the end of May. Area residents interested in joining the co-op can sign up at the co-op web page.
The solar co-op is free to join, and joining the co-op is not a commitment to purchase panels. Goldin Solar will provide each co-op member with an individualized proposal based on the group rate. By going solar as a group and choosing a single installer, members can save on the cost of going solar and have the support of fellow group members and solar experts at Solar United Neighbors.
Solar United Neighbors has hosted more than 60 solar co-ops in Florida since 2015. According to the group’s estimates, the 1,800 homes and businesses that now have solar panels because of co-ops represent: 17-plus MWs of solar power, $39.2 million in local solar spending and more than 585 million pounds of lifetime carbon offsets. Solar United Neighbors supports solar co-ops across the country. These co-ops are a part of the organization’s mission to create a new energy system with rooftop solar as the cornerstone. Solar United Neighbors holds events and education programs to help people become informed solar consumers, maximize the value of their solar investment and advocate for fair solar policies.
