Orange County has selected ESA Renewables to install solar energy panels around the county as part of the county’s solar co-op with Florida Solar United Neighborhoods (FL SUN) and the League of Women Voters to help make solar energy more accessible.
The co-op is a joint project to promote solar energy as a viable alternative, and those familiar with solar to educate and help those who may not know much about it.
ESA Renewables has agreed to install the panels at discounted rates, as per the goal of the solar initiative.
“We diligently reviewed all the options and came to a unanimous conclusion, reviewing all the variables,” said Randa Black, a homeowner and member of the Orange County co-op. “Out of 15 potential vendors, we walked through the steps and looked at the variables and ESA Renewables was the obvious choice taking into account trust, experience, and price.”
ESA Renewables CEO Daniel Ros said millions of Americans are turning to solar — and with good reason.
“Millions of Americans are realizing that solar power is not only environmentally friendly, but also a smart financial decision for their family,” he said. “We look forward to helping so many Orange County residents take charge of their energy needs as we work together to power their future.”
FL SUN Program Director Angela DeMonbreun said the enthusiasm from those interested in the program “amazed” her.
“Going solar as part of a group makes the process much easier to navigate,” she said. “Participants can rely on each other while saving money.”
The bulk purchase program will be open and available to new participants through Nov. 30. Participation is open to all Orange County residents. Visit flsun.org/orange-county to learn more about solar and to sign up to join the group.
