The 20+-member Montgomery County Solar Co-op today issued a request for proposals (RFP) from area solar installers. The Montgomery County Department of Environmental Protection, the cities of Rockville and Takoma Park, along with MD SUN are the co-op sponsors. The group also has two information sessions coming up. It will be meeting this Thursday, June 9 at 7 p.m. at Rockville City Hall (111 Maryland Avenue, RSVP here) and next Tuesday, June 14 at Adat Shalom Congregation
(7727 Persimmon Tree Lane, Bethesda, RSVP here).
Local installers interested in serving the group can download the RFP and response template below. Montgomery 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, each participant generally saves up to 20% off the cost of their system.
