Chestertown residents form solar co-op to go solar together, get a discount

Neighbors across Kent and Queen Anne’s Counties can join a solar co-op to save money and make going solar easier, while building a network of solar supporters. The group is seeking members and will host two information meetings Thursday, June 1, 7 p.m. and Saturday, June 3, 11 a.m. at the Chestertown Town Hall to educate the community about solar and the co-op process.

Chestertown residents interested in joining the co-op can sign up at the co-op website. Joining the co-op is not a commitment to purchase panels. Once the group is large enough, MD SUN will help the co-op solicit competitive bids from area solar installers.

Co-op members will select a single company to complete all of the installations. They will then have the option to purchase panels individually based on the installer’s group rate. By going solar as a group and choosing a single installer, participants can save up to 20% off the cost of their system.
