Solar PV Group Purchasing
Solar group purchasing can greatly reduce the costs of installing solar by leveraging the collective purchasing power of individuals, businesses, or municipal agencies to secure discounted pricing by buying in bulk. Experience has shown that participants favor the integration of group purchasing with emerging solar financing models – including solar leases, power purchase agreements, and property assessed clean energy (PACE) financing – that allow customers to install solar at little or no upfront cost and with monthly costs that are less than what they would otherwise pay for power from their local utility.
paleBLUEdot’s Solar Group Purchasing services support not only more cost effective solar procurement, but can be designed to enhance community clean energy awareness and education as well as support the creation of a local renewable energy economy and job training program. An example of previous paleBLUEdot solar group purchasing which accomplished all of these goals is the group purchasing effort for the Solar Workgroup of Viginia.
