Program Launches to Help Broward County Residents and Businesses Go Solar 

Residents and businesses in Broward County hoping to implement energy-saving techniques into their properties recently received an easier path. The Solar United Neighbors (SUN) recently debuted the Broward County Solar, Storage and EV 2021 Co-op as a way 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.

“The co-op will enable Broward County homeowners and business owners to join the growing community of people saving money by harnessing solar power,” says Laura Tellez, Florida Program Coordinator for SUN, a nonprofit organization that works to represent the needs and interests of solar owners and supporters. “Together, we’re building a movement to transform our electricity system into one that is cleaner, fairer and shares its benefits more broadly.”

Those who join the co-op are not required to purchase solar systems. Instead, SUN facilitates the neutral bidding process and the members then select a single solar company for the installation. Members have the opportunity to purchase panels and electric vehicle chargers based on the company’s group rate.

“The SUN co-op provides residents an opportunity to collectively bargain for the most competitive prices as part of group solar purchase and installation,” says Jennifer Jurado, Broward County’s Chief Resilience Officer and Director of the Environmental Planning and Community Resilience Division. “Residents receive independent technical guidance throughout the process, truly a valuable service for those eager to engage in solar solutions but new to the technology and not sure where or how to start.”

Nearly 120 households in Broward have participated in the SUN’s program since 2017. To help explain how the co-op operates, SUN will host free information sessions at 6 p.m. on Aug. 17 and Sept. 22.

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.
