What is a bulk purchase?

A bulk purchase is when a group of neighbors work with DC SUN to go solar together. By going solar as a group, each participant saves 20% or more off the cost of their system. It’s the same principle as buying in bulk at Costco. The group 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.

Why a bulk purchase?

Banding 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.

How much will it cost to go solar?

The cost of your solar system will depend on it’s size. The size of a system in measured in kilowatts (kW). A typically row house in DC has space for between 3 and 5 kW of solar. A system will generally offset between 30 and 60% of your monthly electricity use.

    • Hi Deborah,

      Where are you located? If you’re in Ward 3/Upper NW you can sign up to participate in that bulk purchase group. Otherwise you can sign up to be notified of any future groups that get organized in other neighborhoods in the city.
