Baltimore co-op seeks installer

The 23-member Baltimore 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. Several Baltimore City community members and MD SUN are the sponsors of this group.

Local installers interested in serving the group can click to download the RFP and response template. Baltimore residents 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, participants can save up to 20% off the cost of their system.
