CUMBERLAND —The Mountain Maryland Solar Co-op has selected Big D Electric to install solar panels for the 43-member group.
The company was picked after a competitive bidding process over four other firms.
“It is an honor to be selected because as a company, Big D Electric has provided awareness of renewable energy to our region since 2005,” said Betsy Delozier, owner of Big D Electric. “We are happy to show customers the benefits of going solar.”
MD SUN expands access to solar by educating Marylanders about the benefits of distributed solar energy, helping them organize group solar installations and strengthening Maryland’s solar policies, as well as its community of solar supporters. The group has helped hundreds of Marylanders go solar.
Co-op members selected Big D Electric because of its competitive pricing and experience. The group also valued that Big D Electric is a local installer based in Cumberland.
“I am excited to work with Big D Electric and see how much I can save with my system,” said co-op member Danny Welsch. “I appreciate having the support of a group as I go through this process.”
The co-op is open to new members until Dec. 31. Garrett and Allegany County residents interested in joining the co-op can sign up at mdsun.org/mountain-md.
Joining the co-op is not a commitment to purchase panels. Big D Electric will provide each co-op member with an individualized proposal based on the group rate. By going solar as a group and choosing a single installer, participants can save up to 20 percent off the cost of their system.
