Q: What do you call a massive solar energy spill?
A: A nice day.
Arlington loves solar.
In less than two months more than 150 people have joined Potomac Solar Co-op. The group is open to Arlington residents interested in purchasing solar panels for their homes at a ~20% discount.
Because so many people have been interested in going solar, a second solar co-op information session is scheduled for July 20th. RSVP here if you would like to attend. Details for the session are below:
Wednesday, July 20 at 7 p.m.
Aurora Hills Community Center
735 18th St. S.
Arlington, VA 22202
If you can’t attend the session, you can still go solar by filling in the form about halfway down on the co-op website to have your roof screened. A co-op representative will follow up with next steps, there’s no obligation to purchase until you sign a contract.
But wait, what’s a solar co-op? Check out the video below to learn more:
