The 12-participant Eastern Kentucky Solar Co-op has 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. Kentuckians For The Commonwealth is the co-op’s sponsor.
Local installers interested in serving the group are encouraged to download the RFP and response template. Residents in and around Berea, Hazard, Morehead, and Whitesburg interested in joining the co-op can sign up at the co-op’s 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.
