Ag Producers’ Solar Co-op releases RFI to installers

By Ben Delman on March 7, 2017

The Ag Producers’ Solar Co-op has issued a request for information (RFI) to area solar installers. Local installers interested in participating in this program can download the RFI here.

The goal of this program is to help West Virginia farmers access the benefits of solar energy with technical support from WV SUN. Farmers interested in joining the co-op can sign up at the Ag Producers’ Solar Co-op website.

This program is open to West Virginia agricultural producers for whom at least 50% of gross income comes from on-site agricultural operations. We are working closely with agriculture organizations and stakeholders in the state to recruit interested participants.

Joining the co-op is not a commitment to purchase panels. WV SUN will connect participants with funding resources, including grant opportunities and guaranteed loan financing programs. WV SUN will assist members in soliciting and reviewing proposals from qualified local solar installers, per installer response to the RFI. We support, advise, and advocate for participants throughout the entire process of going solar.
