Retrofit Baltimore is a project of the non-profit Civic Works. We serve as a resource for the community and provide information about the potential for energy retrofits to dramatically lower your energy bills, while making your home healthier, safer and more comfortable. We also bring residents together, so that as a community we can ensure that our home energy improvements create jobs for underserved Baltimore residents, while minimizing our environmental impact.
Neighbors in Baltimore are forming a Solar Co-op to go solar as a group and get a discount.
Based on the same principal as buying in bulk, the co-op will go through the process of purchasing solar systems together. The group will select a single contractor to install systems on all of the homes, but each participant owns their own system and will sign their own contract with the chosen installer.
By going solar as a group, members will save 30% off the cost of a solar system. They’ll also have the support of the co-op throughout the process instead of having to go it alone. The co-op is being organized by MD SUN, in partnership with Civic Works’ Retrofit Baltimore program. Anyone located in Baltimore City and Baltimore County is welcome to join.
