The Bowie Solar Co-op has released a request for proposals from area installers to serve the 35-member group. After successfully taking more than 50 homes solar in the first round of the Bowie Solar Co-op in 2016, neighbors formed this group to help more Bowie residents go solar.
Residents in Bowie and across Prince George’s County interested in joining the co-op can sign up at the co-op web page. 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, participant generally save up to 20% off the cost of their system.
