East of the River Solar Co-op


The co-op is no longer accepting new members. More than 70 homeowners in Wards 7 and 8 have joined the group, and so far more than 25 have gone solar.   Want to go solar but missed the sign-up deadline?  Join the DC SUN newsletter to learn of new co-ops as they launch in the District.

Co-op in the news

DC SUN is a project of Community Power Network (CPN), a network of grass roots, local, state, and national organizations working to build and promote locally based renewable energy projects and policies. CPN’s founder and executive director, Anya Schoolman, formed the group after she tried to install solar on her Mt. Pleasant home in 2007 and saw how challenging the process was at the time. She organized her neighbors to help make the process easier and more affordable and has been helping others through the process nationwide ever since. CPN provides DC SUN with support and access to a national network of solar homeowners, practitioners, partners, policy experts, and policy makers.
