Co-op closes to new members on February 1, 2023

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! And we’re doing the same thing for EV Charger installations too.

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. We also provide resources if you’re considering installing an EV charger.
  • 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 or an EV charger.
  • 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, and puts energy production and its benefits back in the hands of the people and contributes to cleaner air and water for everyone. A solar and EV charger co-op amplifies those outcomes exponentially.

Broomfield Solar and Storage Co-op selects Sandbox Solar to serve group

Friday, February 17, 2023

The Broomfield Solar and Storage Co-op has selected Sandbox Solar to install solar panels for the group’s 153 members. Members of the co-op’s selection committee (comprised of co-op members) chose Sandbox Solar through a competitive bidding process over four other firms. Sandbox Solar’s competitive pricing, equipment offerings, and local experience all factored highly into their selection.

Sandbox Solar will provide each co-op member with an individualized proposal based on the group rate. They will begin reaching out to co-op members in the coming days.

Broomfield Solar and Storage Co-op releases RFP

Wednesday, January 18, 2023

The 121-member Broomfield Solar and Storage Co-op issued a request for proposals (RFP) today for local solar installers. The group members created the co-op to save money and make going solar easier, while building a network of solar supporters.

Local installers interested in serving the group can download the RFP and response template here. The deadline for submissions is Wednesday, February 1 by 5pm.

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 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 up off the cost of going solar and have the support of fellow group members and solar experts at Solar United Neighbors.
