Iron Range Solar Co-op releases RFP
The 16-member Iron Range 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 Mt. Iron, Congregations Caring for the Earth, and Iron Range Partnership for Sustainability are sponsoring the co-op.
Local installers interested in serving the group can download the RFP and response template here. Residents of Grand Rapids, Hibbing, Chisholm, Virginia, Eveleth, Hoyt Lakes, and Ely are encouraged to join the group!
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 up off the cost of going solar and have the support of fellow group members and solar experts at Solar United Neighbors.
