Frederick County Executive Jan Gardner today announced the launch of a new solar co-operative program to help residents who want to reduce their carbon footprints and save money at the same time.
Homeowners in a solar co-op use their combined bulk buying power to save on the total cost of going solar. Residents purchase power at a lower rate, and enjoy financial incentives. The program also is open to small commercial buildings and other non-residential spaces, such as churches or community centers.
“This exciting solar program will bring homeowners together with a common goal to go green and save green through greater purchasing power,” said Executive Gardner. “I support this sustainability program as one more way to make sure that Frederick County continues to be a great place to live and work for future generations.”
