How to go Solar as a Co-op: Arlington Solar Co-op Final Info Session @ Navy League Building
7:00 pm – 8:30 pm

This Arlington Solar Co-op is part of a local, grass roots effort organized by Arlingtonians for a Clean Environment (ACE), the Arlington Initiative to Rethink Energy (AIRE) and Virginia SUN (a program of Community Power Network).

This workshop is intended for Arlington residents interested in going solar as a group and saving money on the total cost of a solar system. Participants will learn about:

  • how solar technology works
  • the benefits of going solar as a group
  • how a solar co-op works and the cost savings available to participants  by going through a single installer
  • the support available to guide homeowners through the process of going solar.

Who should attend?  Homeowners, and their neighbors, who:

  • are ready to go solar (or are on the verge) and want to learn more about the benefits of the co-op approach
  • are interested in joining a solar co-op

This workshop is made possible through a partnership between Arlingtonians for a Clean Environment (ACE), Arlington Initiative to Rethink Energy (AIRE) and Community Power Network (CPN), a local non-profit that helps communities go solar.

Our Energy Journey Game helps you challenge yourself on everyday actions that have an energy impact as you journey down a path of decisions and chance. We unveiled this unique event to over 600 enthusiastic players of all ages in 2013.  We have made some updates and enhancements and are ready to play it again in 2015!  Here’s what some of our past players had to say:

“Just wanted you to know that I continue to recall many of the energy choices that I made in the game as I face energy choices during my daily life.  I think that the game was very effective in highlighting efficient choices, although I must confess that I am not always making the decision that I made in the game.  Still, at least I feel guilty when I stray, which should lead me to stray less often.  Great job.  I only wish that I had spread the word to more friends.  I just didn’t know that it would be this good.” – Mark

“Great event! Very innovative and fun approach to energy education!” – Michael

“Great idea and excellent way to educate/engage all age groups!” – Jamal
