The Indianapolis Solar Co-op has selected Kentucky-based Solar Energy Solutions to install solar panels for the 37-member group. The co-op says SES is planning to add sales and installation staff to its offices in Bloomington and Indianapolis.

The co-op says its members selected SES over four other firms for its equipment offering at a competitive price and the company’s experience through a bidding process facilitated by Solar United Neighbors.

“The business generated by the co-op will help to boost the local economy as it recovers from the ongoing effects of the COVID-19 pandemic,” said Zach Schalk, Indiana program director for SUN. “Co-op members will help contribute to Indiana’s economic recovery, take control of their energy production and ensure that they receive full retail rate net metering benefits before the mechanism expires next year.”

Despite several proposals this legislative session that would have extended net metering, the co-op says the mechanism will no longer be available to new solar owners starting next year.

“I joined the solar co-op to learn more about the process for installing solar at my house, and to also get a better idea of what it would cost,” said co-op member Al Edyvean. “The solar co-op has been very helpful by providing webinars and other resources to make the whole process easy.”

Edyvean served on the committee of co-op members who reviewed proposals and choose an installer for the groups.

“Solar Energy Solutions is immensely proud to be celebrating its 15-year anniversary by being selected to serve as the 2021 Indianapolis Solar Co-op installer,” said Steve Ricketts, SES co-owner and general manager. “SES is on a mission to push back on climate change, build Indiana’s clean energy economy and transform our legacy energy supply infrastructure.“
