Hillsborough County Solar Co-op
What is a solar co-op?
We bring homeowners together into a group, or co-op. We provide unbiased, installer-neutral support to co-op participants through each stage of the process of going solar. Our experienced team ensures you understand how solar works, how it can be financed, and how it can be installed on your home.
Co-ops take advantage of the group’s bulk-purchasing power to get discounted pricing and a quality installation. Volunteer co-op members choose an installer on behalf of the entire group through an open and competitive bidding process. The selected installer provides co-op participants a personalized proposal for their consideration.

Due to the huge rush of sign ups for the Hillsborough County Solar Co-op, we’ve had to create a second co-op to avoid overwhelming the co-op’s installer and to ensure that each participant receives the time and attention they deserve. By signing up below, you’ll be added to the Hillsborough County Solar Co-op Group B, which will select its own installer and remain open to new sign ups through December 25.Join our co-op

Where we are in the process
The co-op selection committee has chosen SEM Power, LLC, to serve the group. The company is in the process of contacting each co-op participant and developing a personalized proposal based upon the company’s selected bid.
The Hillsborough County Solar Co-op Group B will issue its own RFP to area installers in the coming weeks.
