Palm Beach County Solar Co-op releases RFP, announces info session
The 32-participant Palm Beach County 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. League of Women Voter Palm Beach County, Sierra Club Loxahatchee Group, Southern Alliance for Clean Energy, Citizens’ Climate Lobby, Unitarian Universalist Fellowship of Boca Raton, Audubon Everglades, City of West Palm Beach, and Solar United Neighbors are the co-op sponsors. The group also announced it will host an information meeting on December 4 at 6pm at the Vista Governmental Center to educate the community about solar and the co-op process.
Local installers interested in serving the group can click to download the RFP and response template. Palm Beach 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.
