Florida resident Thomas Edison said decades ago: “I’d put my money on the sun and solar energy.”
At 7 p.m. Wednesday, April 11 at the Palmetto Bay City Hall, 9705 Hibiscus Street, Miami-Dade residents are invited to attend the information session to learn about solar co-ops and how to put Florida Sunshine to work and save money.
Our co-ops bring communities together as homeowners pool their purchasing power to save on their installations.

There’s no cost to join or obligation to go solar through a co-op. All it takes is a sunny roof.
Participants can save money by buying as a group and have peace of mind that going solar makes dollars and sense. It’s all possible with the expert advice of nonprofit Solar United Neighbors.
The co-op solicits bids to area installers, a committee of co-op participants review the bids and select an installer to service the group.
Each participant receives personalized proposals based on guaranteed products and prices.
With an estimate in hand, a homeowner can decide if solar is a good fit — it usually is.
There are 107 participants in this co-op, an installer was selected and installations are already taking place.
Financing is easier with solar-specific bank loans, the Solar and Energy Loan Fund Program (SELF), or the Property Assessed Clean Energy Program (PACE), which adds the cost of energy efficiency upgrades to a homeowner’s property taxes.
The “Sunshine State” is finally going to earn its name as we harness the sun and see the savings. Learn more at SolarUnited
