Phase 2: Preparation

Find Qualified Solar Installers.

To find qualified solar installers, go to the North American Board of Certified Energy Practitioners (NABCEP). You may want to email the RFP to a list of qualified contractors or call them directly to let them know an RFP packet is available digitally (e.g., on your website) or in hard copy at your organization’s office. You also may want to consider advertising your RFP by posting it on social media pages, via a local Builder’s Exchange Plan Room and/or placing a brief ad in the local papers. Include the deadline and contact information for your RFP.

Finding qualified solar installers is as easy as going to the North American Board of Certified Energy Practitioners (NABCEP).

You may want to send your RFP to a list of qualified contractors or call them directly. Let them know that an RFP packet is available digitally on a website or in hard copy at the organization’s office. You may also want to advertise the RFP by posting it on the organization website and/or social media page(s), via a local Builder’s Exchange Plan Room and/or by putting a brief ad in the local papers. Be sure to include key deadlines and contact information – even though those will be included in the RFP itself, listing key details in introductory text will help them get noticed.
