GRAND JUNCTION, Colo. (KREX)–With energy prices skyrocketing, home solar energy is becoming commonplace now more than ever before.

On Tuesday, a non-profit called Solar United Neighbors hosted a gathering for community members to discuss a solar co-op for Western Coloradan’s who are in the market for solar energy. the co-op model relies on the community to make it all work, but that community buy-in and Solar United Neighbor’s partners–like Alpine Bank, Western Colorado Alliance, and the Clean Tech and Business Coalition are what makes the co-op formula work so well.

But this isn’t Solar United Neighbors’ first rodeo–they have found success before right here in the Grand Valley–Colorado’s largest solar co-op. solar united neighbors plans to host more events in the near future–and they hope to get more homes and businesses on solar energy.
