An opportunity for the whole community

In the Southern Homes and Gardens Cooperative community, 55 of its 90
households received solar PV installations on their homes through the DCSEU's Solar Photovoltaic (PV) initiative. 

I have seen tremendous savings on my bill, and I am so happy for my solar panels. I’ve talked to quite a few residents who have also seen a change on their bills, and not one has a bad thing to say about the panels.

Telana Felder, Onsite Manager and Shareholder, Southern Homes and Gardens Cooperative

Ms. Felder, the onsite manager and a shareholder at the cooperative, has reduced her annual costs by nearly $340, and approximately 3,000 kWh from the electric utility’s supply are now being offset by the production from the installed PV panels. That's not all--the panels installed throughout the Cooperative will offset the equivalent greenhouse gas emissions of approximately 20 passenger vehicles per year.
