Allegheny Solar Co-op selects Energy Independent Solar (EIS) to serve group

Thursday, April 7, 2022

The Allegheny Solar and EV Charger Co-op has selected EIS to install solar panels for the 130-member group. Co-op members selected EIS Solar through a competitive bidding process over 3 other firms. They were chosen for their competitive pricing, equipment offerings, system warranty, and local experience. EIS Solar will provide each co-op member with an individualized proposal based on the group rate. By going solar as a group and choosing a single installer, members can save off the cost of going solar and have the support of fellow group members and solar experts at Solar United Neighbors.

Hello and thank you for checking out the solar co-op!

Whether you’re just curious about solar, or you’re ready to make the switch now, I’m here to help. I can answer any questions you have about solar. I’ll give you installer-neutral guidance to help you make an informed, confident decision about going solar.

I am a North American Board of Certified Energy Practitioners (NABCEP) Solar Photovoltaic Associate.® I work throughout Pennsylvania, helping communities go solar, join together, and fight for energy rights. Solar co-ops are a big part of this work!

I love seeing fellow Pennsylvanians harvesting sunshine to lower their electric bills and build a clean, equitable energy system in their communities!
