Thanks for volunteering to be a member of the solar co-op Selection Committee! Your participation is fundamental to the co-op process. Along with other volunteers from the co-op, you can help review the competitive bids that VA SUN has solicited from local companies on behalf of the group. Then, with technical guidance from VA SUN, the Selection Committee will choose one company to be the installer for everyone in the solar co-op.
Before we’re able to share the bids with you, however, we ask that you sign the a confidentiality agreement. This is important because the bids that companies provide often contain commercially sensitive information. In order to maintain a competitive bidding process for future co-ops, local companies need to feel comfortable submitting information to the group. Signing the confidentiality agreement allows us to share these competitive bids, and to discuss them freely within the Selection Committee.
