Standard Energy Solutions selected by participants of the Mt. Pleasant neighborhood solar bulk purchase to provide solar energy to more than 30 Mt. Pleasant residences.

Standard Energy Solution (SES) has been selected by participants of the Mt. Pleasant neighborhood solar bulk purchase to provide solar energy to more than 30 Mt. Pleasant residences. The solar bulk purchase is organized by DC Solar United Neighborhoods (DC SUN), a coalition of neighborhood solar coops.

The bulk purchase agreement is the result of a highly competitive request for proposal process managed by DC SUN. Through the agreement, a group of neighbors in the Mt. Pleasant and Ward 1 neighborhoods are able to collectively go solar, reducing their overall energy costs while saving on their overall installation costs.

DC SUN worked with neighborhood representatives throughout the RFP process to negotiate the bulk purchase agreement. SES was selected as the solar partner by the bulk partner group based upon the company’s overall experience in solar and energy management and efficiency services as well as its expertise in installing solar in the district.

Tony Clifford, CEO of Standard Energy Solutions, commented: “Bulk purchase groups are a cost-effective way to help neighborhoods and communities benefit from solar energy while taking advantage of economies of scale during the installation process.”

DC resident and potential solar customer Ane Powers said: “I have wanted to install solar panels for some time, but was overwhelmed by the cost and complexity. The bulk purchase with Standard Energy Solutions and the support from DC SUN have made it affordable and accessible.”

The installations are expected to begin later this fall. The Ward 1 Group buy is still open for more people to join; the deadline for signing up is Tuesday, October 8th.
