The Greater Arlington Solar Co-op has selected Sigora Solar and Independent Solar Solutions (ISS) to install solar panels for the 83-member group. Co-op members selected both installers through a competitive bidding process over eight other firms. Co-op members are working with non-profit VA SUN to learn about solar technology and the process of going solar.
VA SUN expands access to solar by educating Virginians about the benefits of distributed solar energy, helping them organize group solar installations, and strengthening Virginia’s solar policies as well as its community of solar supporters. The group has helped nearly 500 Virginia homes go solar.
Co-op members selected Sigora and ISS because of their competitive pricing, quality components and warranties.
The co-op is open to new members until Oct. 1. Arlington, Alexandria, and Fairfax residents interested in joining the co-op can sign up at http://www.vasun.org/greater-arlington/. Joining the co-op is not a commitment to purchase panels. The installers will provide each individualized proposal based on the group rate. By going solar as a group and choosing a single installer, participants can save up to 20 percent off the cost of their system.
