This regularly-scheduled sponsored 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 Arlington Solar + EV Charging Co-op, currently open for Arlington and other Northern Virginia residents interested in purchasing solar or an electric vehicle charger at a discount. Got a question? Email us at [email protected]
Installing solar or purchasing an electric vehicle are both great ways to slash your carbon footprint and energy bill. 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 purchase a solar system or an electric vehicle charger for your home at a discount through the Arlington Solar + EV Charging Co-op. You’ll also have the support of experts to guide you through the process.
Solar systems cost less than half of what they would have just five years ago and you can make use of the 30% federal tax credit in addition to the co-op discount. Solar panels are becoming increasingly common place in Arlington. Over 100 residents have purchased panels through co-ops like these and a Solar Foundation study found Arlington was home to more solar jobs than any other county in the state.
Get started by providing some basic information on the website. Folks interested in solar will receive a no-obligation roof screening.
Attend the upcoming information session to learn more on May 2 at 6:30 pm in the Navy League building 2300 Wilson Blvd, Arlington, VA — RSVP here.
