n Solar co-ops available Orange County officially launched its second solar co-op. It’s doing one for east Orange County and one for west Orange County. Residents and businesses who live in municipalities can participate. The first solar co-op was the largest and most successful in Florida. Southwest resident and Orange County Mayor Teresa Jacobs was one of the residents who joined the solar co-op. Solar power supports Mayor Jacobs’ goals in her Sustainability Initiative, “Our Home Life,” which seeks to reduce barriers to alternative energy and increase renewable energy production by 10 percent in 2020 and 25 percent by 2040. Solar co-ops provide bulk discounts of up to 20 percent for a group of homeowners interested in purchasing solar panels. As part of a solar co-op, each participant signs an individual contract with the group-chosen installer, and all participants benefit from the discount. All homeowners who reside in Orange County, including city jurisdictions, are eligible to participate in their respective co-op.
