Fayette County Solar Co-op


A group of neighbors in Fayette County have formed a solar cooperative! There are currently 36 members in the co-op and we are going solar as a group to get a discount. The effort is being sponsored by the Fayette County Green Advisory Team and anyone in Fayette County is welcome to join the coop.

How does the Co-op work?

Join the Co-op!

Sorry, but the deadline to join the co-op has passed. Over 30 Fayette County residents signed up before the deadline! We’re now assessing roofs and AAT, the installer the group selected, is visiting everyone’s homes to provide quotes.

Sign up for the WV SUN newsletter to learn of new co-ops as they launch in your area.
