Eastern Panhandle solar co-ops select Mountain View Solar to serve groups

Charles Town, WV – Two solar co-ops in West Virginia’s Eastern Panhandle have selected Mountain View Solar to install solar panels for their members. Co-op participants selected Mountain View Solar through a competitive bidding process to service the 15-member Potomac Highlands Solar Co-op and the 29-member Jefferson/Berkeley/Morgan Counties Solar Co-op.

“We are honored to be chosen for the Eastern Panhandle co-ops,” said Mike McKechnie of Mountain View Solar. “It is a privilege to have the opportunity to continue to install solar in the community, and to take part in bringing more solar power to our home state!”

Solar United Neighbors of West Virginia expands access to solar by educating West Virginians about the benefits of distributed solar energy, helping them organize group solar installations, and strengthening the state’s solar policies, as well as its community of solar supporters. The group has worked with fifteen West Virginia communities to develop solar co-ops.

Co-op participants selected Mountain View Solar because of their outstanding pricing, quality equipment, strong warranties, extensive experience, and locality to the co-ops.

“Mountain View Solar is a growing, locally owned company whose bid showed competitive pricing while offering a wide variety of services and products,” said co-op member Steve Bauserman. “Our co-op members have unique system requirements that will call for experienced folks with the knowledge and products to do the job. I am very confident Mountain View Solar will meet all our individual needs in a timely and economic manner.”

The co-ops are open to new participants until May 18. Residents of West Virginia’s Eastern Panhandle interested in joining a solar co-op can sign up at solarunitedneighbors.org/PotomacHighlands if they live in Hampshire, Mineral, Hardy, Grant, or Pendleton County,  solarunitedneighbors.org/Jefferson if they live in Jefferson County, or solarunitedneighbors.org/BerkeleyMorgan if they live in Berkeley or Morgan County.

The co-ops are free to join, and joining a co-op is not a commitment to purchase panels. Mountain View Solar will provide each co-op participant with an individualized proposal based on the group rate. By going solar as a group and choosing a single installer, participants receive fair and competitive pricing for solar, with support and guidance from Solar United Neighbors throughout the entire process.
