The Hillsborough County Solar Co-Op Group B, 47 members strong and growing, hosted a selection committee meeting in January to review contractor bids and select a single installer to complete all of the group’s solar projects. Tampa Bay Solar, an experienced local company, was selected by Co-Op participants from among six candidates for its ability to provide quality components and a variety of options for Co-Op members. The next step is for Tampa Bay Solar to provide individualized proposals to each Co-Op participant. Members will then review their proposal and sign a contract, should they decide to move forward with the installation.
Interested residents still have an opportunity to register, with no obligation or commitment to purchase solar panels. Co-Op Group B, in coordination with Solar United Neighbors of Florida and Tampa Bay Solar, extended the registration deadline to February 9, 2018
