Cuyahoga County Solar Co-op Meeting at Lakewood Library
The Cuyahoga County Department of Sustainability and the non profit Solar United Neighbors of Ohio are cosponsoring a free meeting for home and business owners interested in going solar. Topics will include the history of solar power, incentives such as the 30% Federal Solar Tax Credit and financing options including the low interest Cuyahoga County HELP Loan Program.
Attendees will learn how to save money and stress by joining the Cuyahoga County Solar Co-op. The Co-op will grow as meetings are conducted throughout Cuyahoga County. Once the Co-op has reached sufficient size bids will be solicited from installers. Co-op members will choose from among those bids.
There is no obligation and members are free to quit at any time.
Since it's beginning in 2016 the Co-op has helped 80 consumers go solar. The first round of the Cuyahoga County Solar Co-op had 58 members and has already solicited bids from installers.
Solar power furnishes electricity to nearly 25,000 Ohio homes and the industry has created 7,162 jobs in this state. Pleas join us at the Lakewood Public Library on 15425 Detroit Avenue at 6pm on Wednesday July 24 and learn about this emerging green technology.
I live in the Cudell-Edgewater Neighborhood and have long been active in community affairs. I am currently Outreach Coordinator for the Cuyahoga County Office of Sustainability. I hope to use grassroots techniques including door to door canvassing to increase awareness of problems like climate change and the solutions we have to offer.
