A national nonprofit is looking to start a co-op for solar power and EV charger installations in Richmond, Henrico, and Chesterfield. Solar United Neighbors is hosting an information session on Wednesday, Oct. 18 at 6 p.m. at the Main Library.

The co-op organizes residents to negotiate competitive pricing from solar companies and provide resources for members. The group also plans to extend its efforts to installing more EV chargers in the area. It has a goal of getting 100 members to sign on.

Featured partners on the co-op’s web page include the City of Richmond, Henrico Energy Management, green building firm Viridiant, and Norfolk Solar.

Can’t make the info session? The group has two more on the books before the co-op is planned to close to new members on Dec. 12.
