Tampa / County-Backed Co-Ops Make Solar Power Affordable

County-Backed Co-Ops Make Solar Power Affordable

Hillsborough County is helping residents power their homes with solar energy - to lower electric bills and help sustain the environment.


Through participation in a nonprofit Solar United Neighbors (SUN) co-op, dozens of residents leverage their buying power by collectively selecting a single contractor to install solar power systems at their homes. They also acquire the good feeling that comes with helping the environment. Solar-generated electricity eliminates the need to burn fossil fuels, a process that can emit carbon dioxide into the atmosphere.


The County helps set up community meetings at which SUN representatives discuss the co-op program and benefits of solar energy.


Sandra Duenas has a 1,800-square-foot home in the Forest Hills neighborhood of northwest Hillsborough County. For years, she had wanted to convert her home to solar power - "It's the right thing to do," she says - but making the switch was too expensive. By joining a SUN co-op, she was able to pay about half the cost of previous estimates, and finance the deal with installments.


Her monthly electric bill has dropped from a high of about $270, before solar, to $18. She also gets a tax break, and she receives money back from the power company when the 36 solar panels on the south-facing side of her roof generate more power than she needs.


"Do it," Sandra advises residents who consider signing up for the co-op. "Mainly for the environment. But also because you'll pay less for energy every month."


There are many options for homeowners seeking to acquire solar power. SUN co-ops are one of them. They are set up to ensure discount prices, quality installation, and good customer service.


SUN staffers work with co-op members during each step of the process, including soliciting bids, checking company references and capabilities, and choosing a contractor to install the solar systems. Co-op participants collectively have the final say on the installer selected.


Each homeowner then schedules a site inspection with the installer. Homeowners receive customized proposals, but every offer is based on the discounted co-op pricing. Each homeowner decides whether to sign a contract and proceed with installation. There is no obligation to do so.


Educating County residents about solar and shepherding them through the purchasing process are the co-op's primary purposes. SUN staffers address any issues that members have along the way, even after installation is complete. The organization also advocates for solar-friendly policies.


There are SUN co-ops in 13 states. Almost 3,500 homes have switched to solar power through SUN, investing some $65 million in the industry. That means jobs - about 900 of them for construction workers, electricians, roofers, steel manufacturers, distributors, and others.


SUN has been in Florida since 2015, and Hillsborough County since mid-2017. Forty-seven County homeowners joined the first SUN co-op, and more than 110 have registered to learn about a second one. The deadline to sign up is Aug. 2.
