The 21-participant Palm Beach County 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 group also announced it will host an information meeting on Saturday, November 17 at 10:30 a.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. Palm Beach County residents interested in joining the co-op can sign up at the co-op web page: www.solarunitedneighbors.org/palmbeach.
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.
The League of Women Voters Palm Beach County, Sierra Club Loxahatchee Group, Southern Alliance for Clean Energy, City of West Palm Beach Mayor’s Office of Sustainability, City of Boynton Beach, Citizens’ Climate Lobby, Unitarian Universalist Fellowship of Boca Raton, Audubon Everglades, and City of Boca Raton are the co-op sponsors.
