There is an effort underway in Collier County to start a co-op for those who want solar panels. Such a co-op would help people save money when they add solar panels to their homes using the leverage of bulk buying.

We’re joined by Patricia Forkan, the chair of the Environmental Affairs Committee from the League of Women Voters of Collier County which is leading the effort. And Jody Finver, the South Florida Program Coordinator for Solar United Neighbors of Florida, the national nonprofit dedicated to representing the interests of solar owners and supporters, also joins us.
