With some state incentives for solar energy set to end next July, a co-op has launched to help Northern Indiana residents go solar before the deadline. 

Back in 2017, the state voted to lower net metering rates, meaning solar homeowners will receive less credit on their energy bill for the excess power they send back to the grid.
