Spending more time at home and watching your electric bills rise? Trying to help your wallet and the environment? Rooftop solar lets the sunshine pay your bill OR power your car – or both! Learn how Solar United Neighbors' solar co-ops and membership help you plug into the sun. We’ll cover technology and economics of solar and electric vehicles. Many consumers are surprised at how much costs have dropped in recent years. The webinar will be both live and interactive. The first segment features experts on solar and EV. In the second segment, you'll hear firsthand stories from folks who have both an EV and rooftop solar, or PV. We'll close out with a Q+A segment. Learn how electric vehicles and photovoltaic systems (PV) are the sunniest match in the South.

Monopoly utilities have a long history of opposing rooftop solar. They base their opposition on the false claim that non-solar customers subsidize people with solar. This is often called the "cost-shift" argument.

This myth is a dangerous threat to solar. It allows utilities to push anti-solar policies. These policies make it harder for you to go solar.

We will teach you how to dispel the pernicious “cost-shift” argument during this webinar. Expert presenters Karl Rábago, and Nicole Sitaraman will join us. Rábago is a former Texas Public Service Commissioner. Sitaraman is Sunrun's Senior Manager for Public Policy. After their presentations, we will have time for Q&A.

Join us in learning from leaders around the state about what they have done to build consumer education and sustainable living in their communities. From South FL to the Gulf Coast, solar co-ops are a way to support informed consumerism and renewable energy adoption.

This sustainable solution has helped thousands of Florida residents go solar and 10x as many learn about solar energy for their home or small business. Solar co-ops are rinse and repeat projects that handhold residents through the process of going solar, including the technology, economics, financing, and more.

This expert panel includes insight from Florida's leading voices:
- Jill Horwitz, Senior Environmental Program Coordinator, Broward County
- Chris Castro, Director of Sustainability & Resilience, City of Orlando
- Michelle Jenkins, Sustainability Coordinator, Hillsborough County
- Miami-Dade County Office of Resilience

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