Are you able to make a deeper investment?
Consider choosing the UPFRONT subscription option - much like installing rooftop panels but lower cost and without the rewiring hassle - and purchase your solar energy upfront. This allows the cooperative to offer immediate bill savings with no credit check focused on renters and low-wealth households AND offers savings for you.
