St. Johns County residents have banded together to form a solar co-op to make it cheaper and easier for homeowners and organizations to install solar panels, which can produce major savings on power bills. St. Johns Solar Co-op just went online five days ago. There are now more than 30 members, enough to begin the process to select a solar installation company for the co-op.
St. John’s Solar Cooperative is sponsored by Compassionate St. Augustine’s Environmental Rights initiative in partnership with FL Sun and the Florida League of Women Voters.
FL SUN expands access to solar by educating Florida residents about the benefits of distributed solar energy, helping them organize group solar installations, and strengthening Florida’s solar policies and its community of solar supporters. The latest move to expand the use of solar power in the Sunshine State builds on one year of the program with ten co-ops launched already across the state.
The group will host multiple information sessions to educate the community about solar and the co-op process.
The first session is scheduled for:
August 15, 2017, 7:30-8:30p.m.
Willie Galimore Community Center
399 Riberia Street,
St. Augustine, FL 32084
