• What are solar co-ops? A solar co-op is formed when a group of homeowners goes solar, together.
The group selects a single contractor to install systems on all the homes. Each participant owns their system and signs their own contract with the installer.

Join us for a FREE information session to learn about the benefits of going solar in the District and how the 51st State Solar Co-op can help! Solar co-ops allow neighbors to go solar together, simplifying the process while providing a discount through bulk purchasing power. Food and childcare will be provided during the meeting.
The 51st State Solar Co-op offers a unique opportunity for all D.C. residents living in single-family homes to benefit from solar. Income qualified households may be eligible for grant funding to cover the costs of installing solar while still ensuring that the homeowners own their own system from day-one.
This co-op is a project funded by Solar for All, a program of the District of Columbia’s Department of Energy and Environment (DOEE) that seeks to provide the benefits of solar electricity to 100,000 low-income households and reduce their energy bills by 50% by 2032. The program, which was established by the Renewable Portfolio Standard (RPS) Expansion Amendment Act of 2016, is funded by the Renewable Energy Development Fund (REDF).
The co-op will focus on expanding access to solar for low- and moderate-income households, but is open to all District homeowners, no matter their income or neighborhood.
