The Boone County Solar Co-op, launched by non-profit Solar United Neighbors, now has over 40 members, including Zionsville Town Hall. Mayor Emily Styron joined the co-op to review future options for solar panels at Town Hall.
“Earlier this year, we made a commitment to address climate change and reduce greenhouse gases in our town by launching a Climate Action Plan,” said Mayor Emily Styron. “Joining the Boone County Solar Co-op is a logical and important next step. Going solar provides long-term costs savings and is a system that is cleaner and reduces our carbon footprint – one roof at a time.”
The deadline for Zionsville residents and businesses to join the Boone County Solar Co-op is quickly approaching on Oct. 31. There’s no cost to join the co-op and no commitment to go solar. By signing up for free, members will receive a free roof review and access to Solar United Neighbors vendor-neutral resources.
“I joined the solar co-op to learn more about the process for installing solar at my house and to also get a better idea of what it would cost,” said Zionsville resident Eliana Armstrong. “The solar co-op has been very helpful by providing webinars and other resources to make the whole process easy.”
Current co-op members have selected Indianapolis-based Jefferson Electric to install solar panels at a group rate through a competitive bidding process. By going solar as a group and choosing a single installer, members can save on the cost of going solar with the support of fellow group members and solar experts at Solar United Neighbors.
Interested community members may attend a free Solar 101 webinar on Wednesday, Oct. 28 at 6 p.m. More information is available on the Boone County Solar Co-op website.
