Solar United Neighbors (SUN) announced that members of the Northern Arizona Solar Co-op have selected Rooftop Solar to install solar panels for the group. Co-op members selected Rooftop Solar over five other providers through a competitive bidding process. Nearly 175 residents and business owners in Flagstaff, Sedona, and Coconino County have already joined the co-op.

SUN will hold its final virtual public information session for the co-op on Wednesday, March 24, at 6:00 p.m. The free session will educate the Northern Arizona community about solar energy and the co-op process.

“We’re really excited to see so much community interest in solar,” said Derek Turner, vice president of sales and marketing for Rooftop Solar. “Rooftop Solar started in Flagstaff and has grown a lot in the last 10 years. Many of us were raised here and now raising families here. To be selected as the preferred installer by the community means a lot.”

Solar co-op members selected Flagstaff-based Rooftop Solar for their experience and location in Northern Arizona, as well as the company’s competitive pricing, equipment offerings, warranties, and financing options.

“We are looking forward to working with Rooftop Solar as the co-op’s chosen provider,” said Matt Nichols, a member of the co-op’s installer selection committee. “The selection process allowed me and others on the committee the opportunity to choose a provider that would be the best fit for our group in Northern Arizona.”

SUN expands access to solar by educating Arizona residents about the benefits of distributed solar energy, helping them to organize group solar purchases, strengthening Arizona solar policies, and building a community of solar supporters.

Local partners of the Northern Arizona Solar Co-op include the City of Flagstaff, City of Sedona, and Coconino County.

“The Co-op is an exciting example of collective action,” said Nicole Antonopoulos, sustainability director for the City of Flagstaff. “It speaks to our region’s interest in and commitment to renewable energy and the positive impacts of collaboration.”

The co-op is free to join and there is no obligation to go solar. Northern Arizona residents interested in joining the co-op can sign up through March 31 at the co-op website.
