Imagine walking into a solar company’s office with 50 or 100 of your neighbors and saying, “We all want to get solar. What kind of deal can you give us?”

That’s a solar co-op!

In fact, it’s even better than that. In addition to competitive pricing on solar panels, you get:

  • Info to help you understand solar. Our vendor-neutral solar experts are here to help you understand how solar works and make the best decision for your energy needs.
  • A direct line to ask specific questions. You can call or email us anytime you need help. We’ll be here now and long after you install solar.
  • A team that solicits and reviews proposals from solar companies. First, Solar United Neighbors requests bids on your behalf. Then, a committee of your fellow co-op members meet to assess the pros and cons and select the best installer for the group. (Note: If that sounds interesting to you, you’re also welcome to join the selection committee!)
  • Community. You’ll join the growing solar movement. You’ll have a built-in network of support and inspiration from others who, like you, are taking a stand for energy freedom and advancing the clean energy economy.
  • A bigger impact! Going solar creates jobs, puts energy production and its benefits back in the hands of the people, and contributes to cleaner air and water for everyone. A solar co-op amplifies those outcomes exponentially.

Phoenix Metro Solar Co-op issues RFP

Thursday, June 6, 2024

The 47-member (and growing) Phoenix Metro Solar Co-op today issued a request for proposals (RFP) from area solar installers. The group members created the co-op to save money and make going solar easier, while building a network of solar supporters.

There will be a Solar 101 in Phoenix on Tuesday, June 18, at 6 p.m. MST to educate the community about solar and the co-op process. To learn more about the event, click here. Phoenix metro area residents, including San Tan Valley & Queen Creek, interested in joining the co-op can sign up on the co-op web page.

Local installers interested in serving the group can download the RFP and respond here.

The solar co-op is free to join and joining is not a commitment to purchase panels. Co-op members will select a single company to complete all the installations. They will then have the option to purchase panels individually based on the installer’s group rate. By going solar as a group and choosing a single installer, members can save on the cost of going solar, as well as have the support of fellow group members and solar experts at Solar United Neighbors.
