El Paso Solar Co-op selects Apollo to serve group

Thursday, June 16, 2022

The El Paso Solar Co-op has selected Apollo to install solar panels for the 108-member group. Co-op members selected Apollo through a competitive bidding process over seven other firms. Co-op members selected Apollo because of their competitive pricing and quality of components offered.

The co-op is open to new members until June 30. El Paso residents 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.

Apollo will provide each co-op member with an individualized proposal based on the 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.

El Paso Solar Co-op releases RFP, announces info session

Monday, May 9, 2022

The 86-member El Paso Solar Co-op today 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. City of El Paso, Eco El Paso, and Sunrise El Paso are sponsoring the co-op. The group also announced it will host a virtual information meeting on Thursday, May 12 at 6pm MDT (RSVP here) 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 here. El Paso residents 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 members will select a single company to complete all 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 up off the cost of going solar and have the support of fellow group members and solar experts at Solar United Neighbors.

Hello and thank you for checking out the solar co-op!
 

Whether you’re just curious about solar, or you’re ready to make the switch now, I’m here to help. I can answer any questions you have about solar. I’ll give you installer-neutral guidance to help you make an informed, confident decision about going solar.
 

For more than a decade, I’ve worked as an organizer and campaigner for environmental and social change. I work throughout Texas, helping communities go solar, join together, and fight for energy rights. Solar co-ops are a big part of this work!
 

I love seeing fellow Texans harvesting sunshine to lower their electric bills and build a clean, equitable energy system in their communities!
 

Take a look around the co-op page, and let me know how I can help you today.
