Miami-Dade Solar Co-op issues RFP
The 26-member Miami-Dade 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: Green Corridor by Ygrene; Miami-Dade County; City of Coral Gables; Commissioner Levine Cava; Miami Shore Village; CLEO Institute; Dream in Green; Earth Ethics Institute; Catalyst Miami; Miami Climate Alliance. 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 Miami-Dade County interested in joining the co-op can sign up at the co-op web page.
