SolSmart Designation:

SolSmart is a program funded by the U.S. Department of Energy to make it faster, cheaper and easier to go solar. We are designated as a Silver City in the program - the first and only in western Pennsylvania. This is largely due to our reduced local requirements and our quick turn-around time with the permitting approval process. Download our residential solar panel application and get started today!

Solar Co-op - Round III is NOW OPEN!

In November of 2018, Indiana Borough and other local entities partnered with Solar United Neighbors to create the Indiana County Solar Co-op. It grew to be one of Solar United Neighbor's most active co-ops in the state in terms of raw numbers and percentage of participants who signed solar contracts.

Co-ops take advantage of collective purchasing power to make it easier and cheaper for people to install solar systems. Participants select a single installer on behalf of the entire group through an open and competitive bidding process. The selected installer then provides personal proposals for all co-op members at a discounted group rate.

 

The bigger the Co-op, the better the deal.

Indiana County 2022 Solar and EV Charger Co-op:

The Indiana County Solar Co-op is back, and this time with electric vehicle chargers!

 

If you've ever considered installing solar panels on your home or business, this is the second chance you've been waiting for. The co-op is open to homeowners and small businesses throughout Indiana County until 1/31/2023.

Joining is free and no contractual agreements are used during the signup. All members will be able to voluntarily choose whether or not to sign agreements with the selected installer.

Visit Solar United Neighbor's website to join the Indiana County Solar Co-op today!
