The solar cooperative movement began with two teenagers going door to door in their neighborhood in Washington DC. Their work grew into a national organization helping neighbors around the country go solar together, and building a grassroots movement for clean energy for all.

Solar United Neighbors works alongside community organizations, providing the technical expertise to simplify solar for property owners and the political savvy to overcome obstacles. 

The League of Women Voters is SUN's main collaborator in Florida, where the two groups together have organized more than 50 solar cooperatives around the state. 

We talk with Anya Schoolman, Director of Solar United Neighbors, Mary Dipboye of the Florida League of Women Voters, and Warren Clark of the St Johns County Solar Cooperative.
