Co-ops Go Solar

Your co-op could save money and the planet by installing solar panels! UHAB runs a free advisory program called Co-ops Go Solar for any HDFC thinking about solar power; we can help you figure out if solar is viable for your co-op, and how to implement it. Come learn about how solar power works and different incentives and loans that can make it affordable for co-ops in a wide range of financial situations. 

Why should my Co-op Go Solar?

  • Invest in a clean, renewable energy source! Solar panels help lower greenhouse gas emissions and reduce our collective dependence on fossil fuels (which are finite resources).
  • Solar can dramatically offset your building’s electrical bills. Plus, with city and state incentive funding to reduce the upfront costs, most solar panel systems for HDFC’s pay themselves off in 4-8 years.
  • The UHAB Solar campaign will negotiate competitive pricing from qualified local solar installation companies, making the process simple for you. The more of your neighbors that sign up, the lower the price is for everyone! We will provide free assistance with solar assessment, communicating with your board, and finding financing options and engaging a contractor. There will be roles for community participation, including helping to educate other co-op residents, and volunteering for our contractor selection advisory committee.
