Homeowners in Takoma Park and Silver Spring have formed a Solar Co-op! Through a process based on community engagement, they’ve used their collective buying power to get a discounted price for solar panels. Early in February, the group selected Edge Energy through a competitive bidding process. 95+ homeowners are in the group!
The Takoma Park / Silver Spring Solar Co-op is now closed to new participants. Thank you to all of you who raised your hands and said “yes” to solar!

How does the co-op work?
By going solar as a group, members will save approximately 25% off the cost of a solar system. They’ll also have the support of the co-op throughout the process instead of having to go it alone. The co-op is being organized by the City of Takoma Park, Community Power Network (CPN), and CPN’s project MD SUN. Anyone located in Takoma Park, Silver Spring or a surrounding neighborhood in MD is welcome to join.
