This project encouraged the adoption of small- to medium-scale photovoltaic systems by aggregating the purchase of the equipment. The savings from the bulk purchase decreased the per-watt cost of solar thereby making purchasing and installing solar energy more affordable for property owners.
Utilizing a tiered pricing structure meant the more solar installed, the more money customers saved. For example, if a total of 80kW worth of solar were installed the price per kW would drop from $3.39 to $3.25. However, if more than 200kW of solar were installed within the project period the price per watt would be $3.08!
Clean Energy Coalition selected Midland Solar Applications, Inc., a regionally based company, as the designated installer for the program.
