The 24-member Charleston 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. The U.S. Green Building Council-West Virginia, the West Virginia League of Women Voters, and WV SUN are the co-op’s sponsors.
Charleston-area residents interested in joining the co-op can sign up at the co-op web page.
Joining the co-op is not a commitment to purchase panels. Co-op members will select a single company to complete all installations for the group. They will then have the option to purchase panels individually based on the installer’s group rate.
