The 4th Rockville Solar Co-op presents an opportunity to harness solar to power your home or business or electricity to charge up your vehicle.

The city’s Environment Commission produced a video to promote the 2020 solar co-op sponsored by the City of Rockville and Montgomery County.

Community members interested in installing solar panels on their home or business, or an electric vehicle charger, can take advantage of group pricing, rebates and tax credits, and receive guidance throughout the process.

Participants sign independent contracts with the rooftop solar system installer, but band together with other co-op participants to negotiate a volume discount and reduce the total cost of installation. Leasing options, with no upfront costs, add to the affordability of solar rooftop panels, which pay for themselves in energy savings over time.

The deadline to sign up is Monday, Aug. 31. Visit www.rockvillemd.gov/solarhomes to learn more.
