Join a Solar Group Buy

A solar group buy is a group of individuals or business owners, often tied together by some common affiliation, teaming up to help each other go solar. A group can be formed by a local municipality, club, neighborhood, employer, etc. Typically, individuals have a time frame to sign up to get solar installed on their rooftops by an installer at a discounted group rate. Because the more people who go solar the lower the price for everyone, solar group buys inspire many people to go solar who otherwise wouldn’t.

Who Benefits?
