Routt County and the City of Steamboat Springs, in partnership with nonprofit Solar United Neighbors, will be announcing the launch of the Northwest Solar Co-op on Tuesday, May 24 at 6 p.m. The solar co-op is a group formed to help members make it easy to save on solar.
The solar co-op is free to join and joining is not a commitment to purchase panels. Once the group is large enough, it will solicit competitive bids from area solar installers. Co-op members will select a single company to complete all of the installations. They will then have the option to purchase panels individually based on the installer’s group rate. All residents and small business owners in Routt, Moffat, or Rio Blanco counties who are interested in joining the co-op can sign up at solarunitedneighbors.org/northwest.
The in-person event will be held at Centennial Hall, 124 10th St., In Steamboat Springs. RSVP Here
