Participants in Miami solar co-op seek installer

By Ben Delman on July 23, 2018

The Miami Summer 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 League of Women Voters Miami-Dade, Green Corridor, CLEO Institute, University of Miami Sustainability Department, Cushman School, Miami Climate Alliance, and Pinecrest Gardens are some of the partners working with and Solar United Neighbors to organize the co-op. The group also announced it will host an information meeting August 15 at 6:30 p.m. 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. Miami-Dade homeowners 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.
