Central Miami (North) and Central Miami (South) Solar Co-ops release RFPs, Announce Info Session

The 25-member Central Miami (North) solar co-op and the 31-member Central Miami (South) solar co-op today issued requests for proposals (RFP) from area solar installers. The group members created the co-ops to save money and make going solar easier, while building a network of solar supporters. The groups also announced they will host an information meeting on June 6, at 7 p.m. in the Key Biscayne Community Center to educate the community about solar and the co-op process.

Local installers interested in serving the group can click to download the Central Miami (North) RFP, the Central Miami (South) RFP and response template.

Residents of Key Biscayne, Coral Gables, City of Miami west to the Palmetto interested in joining the co-op can sign up at the Central Miami (North) co-op webpage. Residents of Pinecrest, South Miami and unincorporated neighborhoods west to West Kendall interested in joining the co-op sign up at the Central Miami (South) co-op webpage.

Joining the co-op 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, participants can save up to 20% off the cost of their system.
