Building on the success of the Solarize Mass program, the Massachusetts Clean Energy Center (MassCEC) is interested in developing a new pilot program focused on increasing education and adoption of solar photovoltaic (PV) projects. The multi-installer solar pilot program would be targeted towards affinity groups, such as universities or non-profit groups, with a broad geographic base of members in Massachusetts. Through the program, members of the selected affinity group will be able to learn more about solar PV technology, incentives, and financials, while also requesting competitive proposals through a new online platform that would be hosted by MassCEC. This online platform would serve as a new model for streamlining requests to solar installers, as well as compiling multiple proposals for easier evaluation by the customer.
MassCEC is seeking information from affinity groups headquartered in Massachusetts (including, but not limited to, non-profit entities and higher education establishments), solar PV installers doing business in the state, companies that may be able to provide the online platform, or other solar stakeholders in the Commonwealth of Massachusetts.
A full version of the request for proposals can be found on the MassCEC website.
Please submit responses to CS@MassCEC.com no later than 4 p.m. on Aug. 11, 2014 at 4 p.m. “Multiple Installer Pilot – Request for Information Response” must appear in the subject line. Upon receiving and reviewing the responses to this RFI, MassCEC may contact a subset of respondents to obtain additional feedback.
