Solar Co-Op Expands to Norfolk, Portsmouth, Chesapeake, and Suffolk!!!

 The Virginia Beach SolarCo-op has now expanded to include all of South Hampton Roads. Ever wanted to go solar but weren’t sure where to start? Join the VA Beach So. Hampton Roads SolarCo-op!

About the Co-op
A group of neighbors in the South Hampton Roads towns of Virginia Beach, Norfolk, Chesapeake, Portsmouth, and Suffolk have formed asolar purchasing co-op. By going solar as a group, participants will save up to 20% off the cost of a solar electricity system, and will have the support of the co-op throughout the process.

How does it work?

Based on the same principle as buying in bulk, the group will go through the process of going solar together by selecting a single installer. Each participant signs an individual contract with the chosen installer, but all participants get the group discount.

The co-op is being co-sponsored by the Sierra Club and VA SUN, a local nonprofit that helps communities go solar. Local community partners also include Terrascapes and Moms Clean Air Force.

I want to learn more!
