In this Thursday, July 18, 2013 photo, Ketch Ryan, right, and her neighbor Kirk Renaud, pose next her house with solar panels on the roof in Chevy Chase, Md. “In many ways we found that a lot of people were afraid to go solar because they were too afraid of what they didn’t know,” said Ryan, who had a solar energy system installed in her house several years ago. To assist neighbors, Ryan helped establish a cooperative, Common Cents Solar, co-founded with Renaud, “to make sure we didn’t have to reinvent the wheel. We can do it together and we can do it more efficiently,” she said. (AP Photo/Manuel Balce Ceneta)
