Nonprofit group Solar United Neighbors (SUN) has announced the launch of the Manasota Solar Co-op to help residents go solar in Manatee and Sarasota counties. The co-op is free to join and open to homeowners and business owners in Manatee and Sarasota counties. Co-op members will learn about solar energy and leverage their numbers to purchase individual top-quality solar systems at a competitive price.
After a competitive bidding process facilitated by SUN, which is vendor-neutral, co-op members will select a single solar company to complete the installations. Members will have the option to individually purchase panels and electric vehicle chargers based on the installer’s group rate. SUN will host several free information sessions to educate community members about solar energy and the co-op. Individuals interested in going solar can sign up for the co-op or one of the upcoming information sessions at the co-op web page here.
