Rethink Energy: Two Events this Week, Two Ways to Save Energy

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?

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:
