Miami solar co-ops select installers

FL SUN has organized more than 100 area residents to go solar together through the Central Miami (North) and the Central Miami (South) co-ops. The group of Central Miami (North) homeowners selected Cutler Bay Solar Solutions and the group of Central Miami (South) homeowners selected Guardian Solar through competitive bidding processes to install systems for the co-ops’ members. Organized with the help of The League of Women Voters Miami-Dade and many local partners, such as The Green Corridor, Tropical Audubon Society, Rise Up Florida, CLEO Institute, Citizens Climate Lobby and Miami-Dade College, the collaboration is enabling participating homeowners to install solar panels on their homes at discounted rates.

The selected installers will develop individualized proposals for co-op participants. Co-op members will review their proposal and sign a contract with their selected installer if they decide to go solar.

Both the Central Miami (North) and Central Miami (South) Solar Co-ops will be open and available to new participants through August 25. All single-family home residents within these areas are eligible to participate. Visit www.flsun.org/central-miami-north and http://www.flsun.org/central-miami-south to learn more about solar and to sign up to join the group. Joining the co-op is not a commitment to purchase panels.
