MJ Eckhouse, February 6, 2020

Today, the Ohio Environmental Council joined Solar United Neighbors of Ohio, as well as the Sierra Club Central Ohio’s Ready for 100 Columbus and Drive Electric Columbus, to announce the launch of Columbus Area Solar and EV Charger Co-op.

Solar United Neighbors provides information and guidance for residents interested in switching to solar energy. The solar co-op, which is open to Franklin and Delaware County residents, will offer residents the ability to pool their resources and take advantage of bulk purchasing rates when investing in solar panels for their homes, as well as obtain an affordable price for Level 2 electric vehicle chargers for those who wish to add them to their home. The signup deadline is April 30, 2020.

“We are proud to partner with Solar United Neighbors in empowering local residents and communities who choose to move forward with clean, renewable energy,” said Miranda Leppla, Vice President of Energy Policy for the Ohio Environmental Council. “As we continue to face the growing impacts of climate change, we applaud proactive change, especially at the local level, and look forward to encouraging the residents of Franklin and Delaware County to consider going solar.”
