The 45-participant second round of the 51st State Solar Co-op has issued a request for proposals (RFP) from area solar installers. Installers interested in serving the group are encouraged to download the RFP and response template. All bids are due on Thursday, July 26th by 5:00pm.

Residents of District of Columbia who are interested in joining the co-op can sign up at the co-op web page. The Co-op is open to all residents of DC, regardless of income. As a DOEE-funded Solar For All project, the co-op is focused on expanding access to solar for low income households. Low to moderate income households may qualify for Solar for All grant funding from DOEE that Solar United Neighbors is administering to cover the cost of solar arrays. For qualifying households, the solar array paid for by Solar United Neighbor’s Solar for All grant could reduce your electric bills by 50% over the course of a year. Please visit the co-op web page to see if you might qualify.

Please spread the word to your friends and family in the District about this opportunity to go solar with a co-op! If you have any questions, please don’t hesitate to contact us at

Installers can contact Yesenia Rivera with questions regarding the co-op RFP.

Thank you!
