New 2022 solar and electric vehicle charger co-op

We are excited to announce that Arlington’s 8th Solar and Electric Vehicle (EV) Charger Co-op will launch on April 1st (no joke) and run through August 31st for County residents and those in surrounding jurisdictions.

COVID has proven we can do great things even during uncertain times. The 2021 all-virtual Arlington Solar and EV Co-op installed more than twice as many new home solar power systems and EV Chargers than in any previous year with 107 systems. Much of the credit goes to our wonderful non-profit partner Solar United Neighbors.

Is this the first time you are hearing about this opportunity? No problem. We are inviting you to be part of a group purchase that can drive down your costs of going solar and owning an EV. Some group members are even installing home battery systems to provide backup power during grid outages.

Almost 400 homeowners have already taken advantage of Arlington’s Solar and EV Charger Co-op, which helps residents, small businesses and non-profit organizations buy home solar panel systems and electric vehicle (EV) chargers at a discounted price through bulk purchasing. The cooperative provides support to make the purchasing process easy.

Arlington and the region have an opportunity to take action now to help change the trajectory of climate change. Installing solar and driving an electric vehicle can make a difference in cleaning our electric grid and reducing dependence on fossil fuels.

Take advantage of federal residential solar and EV charger tax credits and pay less for improving your home and transportation options. This year the residential tax credits are 26% for solar and will drop to 22% in 2023. Business tax credits are also available.

Learn more about solar, electric vehicle charging and solar battery storage and help our community become carbon neutral by 2050. Be a part of this growing movement.

Register for the Co-op.
