Solar Bulk Buy in 2022

By |2022-03-25T16:26:04-07:00February 15th, 2022|Categories: Bulk Purchases, SSREC News|

We are delighted to announce that SSREC is organizing a bulk buy of solar this year, although our approach has changed somewhat. Our volunteers were a little overwhelmed by the size and scope of our last bulk buy in 2020/2021 which was complicated by following strict Covid-19 protocols, those tedious supply chain issues and logistics challenges from having to juggle demand from half a dozen islands. Yes, it was frustrating, but in the end, solar is ‘up’ and doing its magic, supplying electricity from the sun quietly, reliably and inexpensively. This year, there will be less waiting for the installation since we plan to hit the virtual ‘order and install’ button as soon as we have commitments from 3 to 5 solar enthusiasts in one area. Regrettably, the smaller bulk means that ‘bulk’ discount will be smaller than in previous years, but still worth it.

If you are interested in going solar, please send an email to SSRECinfo@gmail.com and we’ll do an initial free assessment of solar feasibility and start a conversation on what solar can do for you and answer any questions you may have about solar. If everything checks out and solar looks promising, we usually proceed to an on-site assessment to confirm measurements & status of roof, examine compatibility with your electrical system and perform an in-depth shading analysis – for a small fee. Only when you are completely happy with the information received, do we ask our installers for a binding quote for your solar system, including installation, registration with the utility and permitting – the works.  When contacting us, please provide a street address and  if google maps can’t find you or puts the marker into the middle of the shrubbery – as it often does around the islands – we will also need Latitude-Longitude coordinates. You can find those on your cell-phone. Or ask us for instructions on how to find the coordinates.

2019 Bulk Purchase/Installation of Solar Systems

By |2022-03-25T16:25:06-07:00July 23rd, 2019|Categories: Bulk Purchases, SSREC News|

The Salish Sea Renewable Energy Cooperative (SSREC) is a local cooperative of dedicated volunteers who are enthusiastic about solar energy and strive to decrease our carbon footprint and save some money along the way.

We are currently organizing another bulk purchase/installation of solar systems around the Salish Sea for our members

– to add to the 55 systems we helped install already

This is a great opportunity to join the solar revolution at a very competitive price. We’re here to help, provide information and do the preliminary work with you. We will be doing complimentary remote assessments during July and early August.

If you are interested please email SSRECinfo@gmail.com. If you would like to have a remote assessment, email us your street address or latitude and longitude coordinates and contact phone number to get things rolling.

Deadline for our 2019 bulk buy is September 30

Check out additional information at SSREC.org, where you can also find an application form to join the coop. Joining the coop is not essential for the remote assessment, but only members can participate in the bulk-purchase and there is a cost, yet to be determined, for the final on-site assessments.
