Solar United Neighbors (SUN) is a nonprofit that expands access to solar by educating Florida residents about solar energy and helps them organize group solar installations known as solar co-ops. Solar United Neighbors has facilitated more than 40 solar co-ops across the state, including the first co-op in Florida in St Petersburg in 2016. Since then, they’ve helped thousands of Floridians go solar.
The St Pete Solar Co-ops bring homeowners together to provide unbiased, installer-neutral support to participants through each stage of the solar process. The experienced SUN team ensures you understand how solar works, how it can be financed and how it can be installed on your home.
Volunteer co-op participants choose a single installer on behalf of the entire group through an open and competitive bidding process. The selected installer provides co-op participants a personalized proposal for their consideration. By going solar as a group, participants can save on the cost of going solar and have the support of fellow participants and solar experts at SUN.
