Harlem residents are finding a way to make dollars and sense out of solar panels — forming an energy co-op.
The Harlem Solar Cooperative, a network of more than 50 uptown residents, businesses, and community organizations, will use collective ownership to more easily access the benefits of solar energy.
“Our big vision is not only to put solar panels on rooftops, save some energy, and save some money, but also to make Harlem-based green jobs,” said Brian Smith, the co-op’s founder and an environmental consultant. “We want to make a green industry in Harlem.”
