Beaver-Butler Solar Co-op releases RFP, announces info session

The 28-participant Beaver-Butler Solar Co-op today issued a request for proposals (RFP) from area solar installers. The group participants created the co-op to save money and make going solar easier, while building a network of solar supporters. The League of Women Voters of Pennsylvania, Riverwise, Marcellus Outreach Butler, Re-Imagine Butler County, and Sustainable Enterprise Accelerator along with Solar United Neighbors are the co-op sponsors. The group also announced it will host an information meeting on Thursday, June 6th at 7pm to educate the community about solar and the co-op process.

Local installers interested in serving the group can download the RFP here and response template here. Residents of Beaver and Butler Counties interested in joining the co-op can sign up at the co-op web page.

The solar co-op is free to join and joining is not a commitment to purchase panels. Co-op participants will select a single company to complete all of 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, participants can save on the cost of going solar and have the support of fellow group participants and solar experts at Solar United Neighbors.
