What is a Solar Group Buy?
A solar group buy is a program for reducing solar energy installation costs for residents, businesses and nonprofits who share a common bond.
Each group buy program defines who is eligible to participate and offers discounted prices based on the economies of scale made possible by being part of the group. Legacy sets up the logistical and marketing structure of the program. The sponsor, like a community group in a city or county, assists with the promotion of the program within their community.
The end result is that each group buy participant realizes significant cost savings when installing solar.
Being part of a Legacy Solar Co-op solar group buy is an easy, affordable way to achieve your solar goals, while building resiliency and promoting economic justice in your community. It also gives participants the easy button through a recent financing option with greenpenny, a virtual and carbon-neutral bank dedicated to financing a sustainable tomorrow.
