The meeting will be held on Thursday, April 25 from 6:00 - 8:00 p.m. at the Mayfield Regional Library - 500 SOM Center Rd. No registration is required to attend.
In partnership with the non-profit Solar United Neighbors, the Department of Sustainability will discuss the 30 percent Federal Solar Tax Credit, how to find out if your home is right for solar, and how to use Cuyahoga County's low-interest HELP Loan Program to purchase a solar system. They will also discuss how to solve technical issues, information on typical industry warranties and the cost savings involved in forming a buyer's co-op to solicit bids from installers.
Solar United Neighbors of Ohio has worked with nearly a dozen solar co-ops, helping roughly 170 Ohio homes go solar, saving Ohio residents more than $5 million on electricity costs over a 25-year span. Co-op members save money by making a large-scale purchase and taking advantage of other member's expertise. Each co-op member gets an individualized proposal that reflects the group discount.
