Collier County Solar Co-op releases RFP, announces information session

By Ben Delman on February 5, 2019
Solar supporters gather at information session to learn about going solar with the Collier County Solar Co-op.

The 52-participant Collier County 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 group also announced it will host information meetings February 12 and March 6 (details below) to educate the community about solar and the co-op process.

Local installers interested in serving the group can download the RFP and response template. Collier County residents 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 up off the cost of going solar and have the support of fellow group participants and solar experts at Solar United Neighbors.

The League of Women Voters of Collier County, Lipman Farms, Gulf Breeze Real Estate, St. Marks Episcopal Church, Cycle Guroo, Audubon of the Western Everglades, Women Together For Action, and Conservancy Of Southwest Florida are the co-op sponsors.
