Neighborhood Solar Coops

DC SUN is made up of a network of neighborhood solar coops. Coops host meetings, organize events, and help neighbors go solar. There are neighborhood solar coops in all 8 wards of DC! Click below to learn more about a coop in your area.

Ward 8 neighbors Darlene Williams and Monyna Dorsey live next door to each other and went solar together in 2012.

Check out a video made by the members of the Mt. Pleasant Solar Coop on their experiences working together to go solar:

Don’t see a coop in your area? You can start one! Check out our guide to starting a neighborhood solar coop. DC SUN depends on community members who are willing to step up and build coops in their neighborhoods. Leaders do not need any experience with solar energy; we have a DC SUN Volunteer Handbook that gives you all the information you need to get started. The strength and vitatlity of DC SUN depends on everyone stepping up to make solar happen!
