The 21-participant Cambria County Solar Co-op today issued a request for proposals (RFP) from area solar installers—the first Solar United Neighbors of Pennsylvania group to do so. The group created the co-op to save money and make going solar easier, while building a network of solar supporters. The Sierra Club of Pennsylvania, Johnstown’s Vision 2025, and Solar United Neighbors are teaming together to co-sponsor the group.
Local installers interested in serving the group can download the RFP letter here and response template here. Cambria County residents interested in joining the co-op can sign up at the co-op website.
Joining the co-op is not a commitment to purchase panels. Co-op members 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 up off the cost of going solar and have the support of fellow group members and solar experts at Solar United Neighbors.
