Citrus County Solar Co-op issues RFP
The 29-member Citrus County Solar Co-op 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. The co-op is sponsored by: League of Women Voters of Citrus County; Sierra Club – Adventure Coast Group; Citrus County Audubon Society; Florida Springs Council; Friends of the Chassahowitzka; Nature Coast Americans United for Separation of Church and State; Nature Coast Unitarian Universalists. The group also announced it will host information meetings to educate the community about solar and the co-op process. To learn details on when and where these meetings will occur, or to register for any of the free meetings, please visit the Events tab of 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 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, members can save off the cost of going solar and have the support of fellow group members and solar experts at Solar United Neighbors. Residents of Citrus County interested in joining the co-op can sign up at the co-op web page.
