Programs & Issues

You’re all invited to an upcoming info session on the Uptown Solar Co-op hosted by the Lowry Hill East Neighborhood Organization (LHENA) on:
Nov. 30th at 7pm
at the LHENA office
(Facebook event here)
The co-op is a facilitated bulk-buy model for roof-top PV installations for homes and businesses and was recently featured in Midwest Energy News. Through this limited-time opportunity, property owners can band together to access discounts on equipment and installation prices. Rooftop solar generates enough savings to pay for itself over time, and this model speeds up that process.
An experienced non-profit, which is supported by the McKnight Foundation and which has led solar co-ops in other states, will be guiding this initiative. Our goal is to recruit 30 or more property owners, who would be interested in forming the co-op group. I’d like to stress that this is an information session and that you would be under no obligation to join.
Also please don’t let the name of the project throw you off – the borders that we’re defining for this project are loose, and the goal is really to connect as many people who would be interested in installing solar with this facilitated process. Please feel free to share this information far and wide, with anyone who may be interested.
