Banning together to purchase quantities of solar panel and the installation services of a solar company can reduce prices substantially for groups.
Bulk purchasing also offer an opportunity to organize your neighborhood around solar and create a community around solar and energy issues.
Maryland Solar United Neighborhoods (MD SUN) can help you organize a group of neighbors to go solar “in bulk”.
What is a bulk purchase?
The bulk purchase is based on the same principal as buying in bulk at Costco. By buying a bunch of panels as a group we can get a lower price on the equipment and save on the total cost of installation.
Like any company, a solar installer likes to have larger jobs coming to them because they can cut their prices due to economies of scale and reduced labor costs for business development and marketing.
As a group we will go through the process of purchasing solar systems together. The group will select a single contractor to install systems on all of the homes, but each participant owns their own system and will sign their own contract with the installer.
How much will it cost?

You can also organize an info meeting! Host a gathering and get your neighbors together. We will come to the meeting and explain how these bulk purchases work and how to set them up in your neighborhood.
