Broward Solar Co-op Moves Closer to Fruition

Members of the Broward Solar Co-op recently chose Cutler Bay Solar Solutions to serve as the installer of solar panels for the group. The company was selected through a competitive bidding process with five other firms. 

“Millions of Americans are realizing that solar power is not only environmentally friendly, but a smart financial decision for their family,” says Raul Vergara, Vice-President & Founder of Cutler Bay Solar Solutions.

The Solar United Neighbors (SUN) formed the Broward County Solar, Storage and EV 2021 Co-op to help people in the county utilize solar to reduce energy costs.

By learning about solar energy and how to harness it, the program brings interested buyers together to leverage their numbers to purchase quality solar systems at competitive pricing. SUN expands access to solar by educating Broward County residents and small business owners about the benefits of distributed solar energy, helping them organize group solar installations, and strengthening Florida’s solar policies and its community of solar supporters. 

The partnership is free to join for anyone in Broward County, but doing so does entail a commitment to buy panels. By working as a group with a single installer, members can save on the cost of going solar and support fellow group members and solar experts at Solar United Neighbors. Each member will receive an individualized proposal based on the group rate provided by Cutler Bay Solar Solutions.

“If you’ve ever thought about going solar, now is your chance,” says Laura Tellez, Solar United Neighbors’ South Florida Program Coordinator. “The co-op makes it easy to learn about solar and works with you throughout the process.”

Since December 2016, SUN has facilitated 67 solar co-ops in Florida, which has helped more than 1,900 Florida families go solar and generated $59 million invested into Florida’s economy. 

To help explain how the co-op operates, SUN will host a free information session at 6 p.m. on Sept. 22. For more information, visit SolarUnitedNeighbors.org/Broward.

BIOGRAPHY

Drew Limsky joined Lifestyle Media Group in August 2020 as Editor-in-Chief of South Florida Business & Wealth. His first issue of SFBW, October 2020, heralded a reimagined structure, with new content categories and a slew of fresh visual themes. “As sort of a cross between Forbes and Robb Report, with a dash of GQ and Vogue,” Limsky says, “SFBW reflects South Florida’s increasingly sophisticated and dynamic business and cultural landscape.”

Limsky, an avid traveler, swimmer and film buff who holds a law degree and Ph.D. from New York University, likes to say, “I’m a doctor, but I can’t operate—except on your brand.” He wrote his dissertation on the nonfiction work of Joan Didion. Prior to that, Limsky received his B.A. in English, summa cum laude, from Emory University and earned his M.A. in literature at American University in connection with a Masters Scholar Award fellowship.

Limsky came to SFBW at the apex of a storied career in journalism and publishing that includes six previous lead editorial roles, including for some of the world’s best-known brands. He served as global editor-in-chief of Lexus magazine, founding editor-in-chief of custom lifestyle magazines for Cadillac and Holland America Line, and was the founding editor-in-chief of Modern Luxury Interiors South Florida. He also was the executive editor for B2B magazines for Acura and Honda Financial Services, and he served as travel editor for Conde Nast. Magazines under Limsky’s editorship have garnered more than 75 industry awards.

He has also written for many of the country’s top newspapers and magazines, including The New York Times, Washington Post, Los Angeles Times, Miami Herald, Boston Globe, USA Today, Worth, Robb Report, Afar, Time Out New York, National Geographic Traveler, Men’s Journal, Ritz-Carlton, Elite Traveler, Florida Design, Metropolis and Architectural Digest Mexico. His other clients have included Four Seasons, Acqualina Resort & Residences, Yahoo!, American Airlines, Wynn, Douglas Elliman and Corcoran. As an adjunct assistant professor, Limsky has taught journalism, film and creative writing at the City University of New York, Pace University, American University and other colleges.
