Community Owned Solar
Energy Democracy is coming to New England! Resonant Energy is working with consumer-owned energy cooperative Co-op Power to allow anyone who pays an electric bill to purchase and own solar panels in a single, cooperatively managed array. Co-op Power and Resonant Energy’s professional staff provide technical assistance to participants in identifying a site, evaluating contractor installation bids, permitting, and building a solar array that returns maximum value back to the community. Once a site is identified, participants may purchase the number of solar panels that best matches their electricity use.
Advantages of Community Owned Solar
- Direct Ownership: Participants receive the full suite of state and federal incentives for owning solar panels.
- Shared Costs: By co-locating with other community members, the cost to each individual is reduced.
- Optimal Site: By locating the array away from your home, you can use an ideal site with great solar exposure.
- Hassle-Free: Co-op Power will operate and maintain the system for 20 years.
