Last chance to sign-up for the Arlington Solar and Electric Vehicle Charger Co-op

Be a part of the climate solution by joining a group of over 250 Arlington area homeowners who have already applied to be a part of the 2022 Arlington Solar and Electric Vehicle (EV) Charger Co-op. The deadline to register to be considered for the Co-op is August 31, 2022!

Make your own energy and help Arlington reach its goal to become carbon neutral. Solar systems can greatly reduce your electric bills, help make our electric grid cleaner and even provide some shading to your rooftop. Driving an EV in Virginia instead of a gasoline engine vehicle can reduce your carbon emissions by more than 50%!

Arlington invites you to be part of a group purchase that can drive down your costs of going solar and owning an EV charger. Some group members are installing home battery systems to provide backup power during grid outages. The Co-op is open to homeowners and businesses in the Arlington area.

Almost 400 area solar systems have been installed through this Co-op over the 8 years of partnership between Arlington County and the non-profit Solar United Neighbors (SUN). The Co-op provides support to make the purchasing process easy.

Take advantage of federal residential solar tax credits and pay less for improving your home and transportation options. This year, get up to 26% in residential tax credits for solar installation. Next year, tax credits will drop to 22%! Business tax credits are also available.

How does it work?

Registering for Co-op consideration is a no-risk action. Once you enter your home address, Solar United Neighbors (SUN) will conduct an audit of your roof with digital aerial photography and will determine whether you are a good candidate. If so, you will be contacted by the installer, who was selected by the Co-op members.

Once you receive an estimate, you will have 30 days to consider signing a contract. There is no obligation prior to signing! And if you do sign, you will be on your way to producing your own power!

Learn more about solar, electric vehicle charging and solar battery storage and help our community become carbon neutral by 2050.

Register for the Co-op and sign up for the last virtual info session on August 23 at noon.

Self-led Decision Making – An IFS Approach

Whenever we feel indecisive, it’s usually because different parts of ourselves see things differently and are motivated by different priorities and concerns. In fact, it’s usually the friction between these different “camps” that makes us feel stuck.
