Earlier today the OH SUN and WV SUN issued a request for proposals (RFP) from local installers on behalf of the Mid-Ohio Valley Solar Co-op. Currently the group has 20 members in both Ohio and West Virginia, eager to move forward in the solar process.Mid-Ohio Valley Climate Action, WVU Parkersburg Ecohawks, the Wood County League of Women Voters , Ohio Interfaith Power and Light, and Friends of Lower Muskingum River are all co-sponsors of the co-op and are helping make this effort a success.
Local installers interested in serving the group can download the RFP here and the response template here. Mid-Ohio Valley and greater Parkersburg area 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.
