Georgetown solar co-op picks provider


The Georgetown-Burleith Solar Co-op has selected the company GreenBrilliance — above two others that bid competitively — to install solar panels for its members. According to a news release, GreenBrilliance came out on top due to its competitive pricing, local experience and record of customer satisfaction.

The co-op, part of the DC SUN umbrella of neighborhood groups expanding the use of solar power, started in 2008 and now involves more than 40 property owners. It is accepting new members through June 30.

Going solar as a group and choosing a single installer can save participants up to 20 percent of the cost of their system, according to the release. Sign-up is available online at, and an information session will take place 6:30 to 8 p.m. June 26 at the Georgetown Library, 3260 R St. NW.
