Cuyahoga County Solar Co-op releases RFP

The 100-member Cuyahoga County Solar Co-op has 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 County of Cuyahoga government and OH SUN are the co-op sponsors.

Cuyahoga residents interested in joining the co-op can sign up at the 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, each participant generally saves up to 20% off the cost of their system.
