The 21-participant Miami UTD 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. United Teachers of Dade, the League of Women Voters of Miami-Dade, Green Corridor, CLEO Institute, Miami Climate Alliance and Rise Up Florida are some of the co-op sponsors. The group also announced it will host an information meeting on November 10 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 residents interested in joining the co-op can sign up at the co-op web page: www.solarunitedneighbors.org/miami.
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.
