Commissioner Levine Cava announces new solar co-op for County employees


MIAMI-DADE – County Commissioner Daniella Levine Cava, in partnership with Solar United Neighbors, today announced a new solar co-op with a special focus on County employees.

More than 1200 homeowners in Miami-Dade have joined solar co-ops since they launched just 18 months ago. So far, 140 participants have signed contracts and installed solar on their homes.

That’s nearly 1,500 Kilowatts of home-grown solar energy which has already saved $700,000 for those participants and is expected to eliminate 55 million pounds of greenhouse gas over the life of those systems.

“I’m delighted to help Florida Solar United Neighbors connect with the thousands of County employees to share ways they can ‘go solar’, cut their energy bills and protect our environment,” said Commissioner Levine Cava.

Miami-Dade County employs nearly 27,000 residents.

Solar United Neighbors, Commissioner Levine Cava and several County departments are hosting special lunchtime information sessions at various County buildings this month. Two of those sessions will be held tomorrow, Jan. 24, noon to 1:00 p.m. and 1:00 p.m. to 2:00 p.m. at the Stephen P. Clark Building on the 18th floor.

Commissioner Levine Cava is providing a light lunch during Thursday’s sessions to give employees some energy while they learn how to save on their home energy bills.

Those interested in learning more about joining a solar co-op should register at www.solarunitedneighbors.org/miami. Space is limited.
