Live in Central Miami (South) and want to go solar? Now's your chance! Neighbors across Pinecrest, South Miami and unincorporated neighborhoods west to West Kendall have formed the Central Miami (South) County Solar Co-op with the help of FL SUN to make it easier to save money on the purchase of solar panels, while building a community of local solar supporters. Join us for an information session in South Miami to learn about solar energy, as well as how the Central Miami (South) County Solar Co-op simplifies the process of going solar while providing a discount through its bulk purchasing power.
FL SUN, in partnership with the League of Women Voters, expands access to solar by organizing groups of neighbors across Florida to form cooperatives (co-ops) to get discounts on members’ individual purchase of solar systems for their homes (average 15-20% discount).
Co-ops are being successfully implemented in Broward, Sarasota, Orange, and Alachuacounties. In Miami-Dade, the goal is to facilitate the installation of at least 350 residential solar systems through the use of the six cooperatives, for an estimated 3.2MW of installed solar capacity. This is estimated to facilitate $8,000,000 in local solar investments.
