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. Have a question? Email us at [email protected]!
The solar cooperative movement has grown far and wide, creating sustainable enterprises that generate jobs and strengthen local economies. In Virginia, there are more solar jobs than coal jobs. Arlington is #1 for solar jobs among all counties in Virginia.
To date, more than 120 Arlington families have installed solar with the Arlington Solar Co-op.
Have you thought of going solar or purchasing an electric vehicle (EV)? Maybe you already bought an EV but don’t have a great place to charge it.
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.
The Co-op is holding two events this week for folks interested in joining or learning more:
- Informal Solar Celebration and Kickoff
Tuesday, May 1 from 6:30-8:30 p.m.
Arlington Rooftop Bar & Grill, 2424 Wilson Blvd.
RSVP here to chat about solar, EV’s or simply to celebrate the solar movement!
- Solar + EV Charging Co-op Information Session
Wednesday, May 2 at 6:30 p.m.
Navy League Building, 2300 Wilson Blvd.
RSVP here to learn how solar systems, electric vehicle charging stations, and the co-op concept works, and get your questions answered.
You don’t need to attend an event to participate in the group. Simply visit the website and click “Join Our Co-op”.
We hope to see you there!

When Marine veteran Brendan McElroy started working on the sales side of the consulting industry, he quickly realized that although he enjoyed the more interactive part of his job, he did not like the “typical consulting-sales model.”
15 year old Australian Shepherd went missing from her yard in Waycroft-Woodlawn on the evening of August 8.
A pet tracker hasn’t been able to find her, and despite roaming in a busy area, there have been no reported sightings. She is microchipped, and her information is up to date. It’s most likely someone has picked her up. If found, or if there is any information, please contact the Animal Welfare League of Arlington or her owner at 571-510-0508 or [email protected]. If spotted, please don’t approach or call to her, but take a picture and call her owner.
As the summer winds down, it’s a great time to look forward to a creative fall! Art House 7 has a terrific selection of classes, for preschoolers to adults. Our fall session, starting September 6, offers painting, drawing, sculpture, collage, ceramics (including the wheel) and sewing. We have specialty classes such as Suminagashi, the ancient art of Japanese water marbling.
If you’re looking for a shorter commitment, we also have a full schedule of workshops, Art Nights, and Morning Art Socials. If you haven’t discovered Art House 7, please check us out! We offer classes throughout the year, taught by a range of fantastic teachers. You can buy art supplies next door. We’re near the Lee Harrison shopping center, and free parking is outside our door.
