Homeowners across Greater Houston are working together to have solar panels installed on their homes with the help of non-profit Solar United Neighbors. They have formed bulk purchase groups, called “solar co-ops”, to make it easier to go solar. Participants in the Greater Woodlands Solar Co-op and the Houston Central Solar Co-op have released requests for proposals from area installers to serve their groups.
The solar co-ops are free to join and joining is not a commitment to purchase panels. Selection committees composed of solar co-op participants will review the bids their group receives and choose the one that best serves the needs of the group.
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 co-op participants and solar experts at Solar United Neighbors.
Solar United Neighbors is hosting several public information sessions (details below) in the Greater Houston area to educate attendees about solar technology and to recruit new participants to the co-ops.
