Broomfield Solar Co-Op
Have you ever considered going solar? Solar energy is already at work for the City and County of Broomfield, offsetting on average 20% of the grid energy used at nine CCOB buildings. Going solar is a way to save money and support a more sustainable Broomfield.
CCOB teamed up with Solar United Neighbors to bring you the Broomfield Solar Co-op. A solar co-op is a way for homeowners and small business owners to learn about solar energy together and consider purchasing solar panels at a group rate from a single installer. This initiative was very popular and the co-op has already reached capacity; however, additional potential members will be placed on a waitlist and may be added to the co-op depending on contract commitment and installer availability. Waitlisted members will be eligible for certain benefits of the co-op including access to solar experts, a free roof review to determine if solar is a good fit for their homes and membership priority should the co-op reopen.
Advantages of Solar Energy
In 2016, the Broomfield City Council adopted the Broomfield Comprehensive Plan. Part of that plan for a sustainable future is to increase the amount of solar energy being used in Broomfield.
Solar energy is renewable meaning that, unlike fossil fuels, it is not a finite resource of which the world will run out. While solar panels are unlikely to power a home or business on their own, adding solar panels to your home will reduce your electricity bill by supplying you with your own energy source.
Why join a solar co-op?
There are a number of advantages to joining a solar co-op. Not only are you given resources to help understand solar, but you also receive information about solar energy from a non-profit organization familiar with solar providers in the region. Another great reason is getting a group discount on solar energy installation.
