Solar Coop in Mount Pleasant

Location: Mount Pleasant, Washington, DC, USA
This is one of two signs I've seen within a block of my
apartment.
Have you seen signs like this in your neighborhood? If so, there be solar.

The Mount Pleasant Solar Coop is an association of more than 300 households in Mount P. They were founded in the fall of 2006 by neighbors Anya Schoolman and Jeff Morley.

They decided to adopt the coop model because it allows information sharing and bulk purchasing.

Learn more at their website and I also enjoyed their profile video.

There are other solar coops in the area. In fact, Grant Klein of has been mapping them out in Virginia. Check out his very detailed map. I don't know how up to date this is but it's pretty cool.
