Rethink Energy: New Arlington Solar Co-Op

This regularly-scheduled sponsored Q&A column is written by the Arlington Initiative to Rethink Energy team (AIRE). This county program helps you make smart energy decisions that save you money and leaves a lighter footprint on the environment. This post focuses on the Greater Arlington Solar Co-op, currently open for Arlington and other Northern Virginia residents interested in purchasing solar at a discount.  Got a question?

Most of us have probably thought, or dreamed, about going solar. It’s a great way to slash your energy bill, your carbon footprint and your dependence on the electric grid. But like any major purchase it’s hard to know if you’re getting a good price or what questions to ask.

If that sounds like your experience, you’re in luck! For a limited time, you can go solar at a 20 percent discount through the Greater Arlington Solar Co-op. You’ll also have the support of the solar community to guide you through the process.

Solar has never been cheaper. Systems cost less than half of what they would have just five years ago and the federal tax credit offers an 30 percent discount in addition to the co-op discount.

Over 80 Arlingtonians have already gone solar using co-ops like this. To get started, visit the co-op website for a no-obligation roof screening (you’ll provide your information using a form near the bottom of the site), and/or attend an information session to learn more:

  • First info session: Wednesday, May 10, 7 p.m., Navy League Building, 2300 Wilson Blvd, Arlington. RSVP here.
  • Second info session: Thursday, May 11, 7 p.m., The Pavilion at Mark Center, 5708 Merton Court, Alexandria. RSVP here.
