The Massachusetts Clean Energy Center (MassCEC) is seeking proposals from solar installers for the 2012 Solarize Massachusetts (Solarize Mass) program, which encourages the adoption of small scale solar PV by deploying a coordinated education, grassroots marketing and outreach effort, combined with a tiered pricing structure that provides increased savings as more people in the community go solar.

MassCEC is requesting proposals from solar photovoltaic (PV) installers to offer quality solar PV installations along with competitive pricing to the customer. MassCEC seeks proposals from solar installers that can provide both a direct-purchase and a lease/power purchase agreement model for residential and small-scale commercial solar PV installations, as well as aggregation services for the sale of SRECs.  Installers will be allowed to bid on a maximum of four communities and may be selected for more than one community.  Proposals will be evaluated individually by MassCEC, DOER, and the selected Green Community representatives based on overall quality of the proposal, including but not limited to, the installer's ability to provide quality customer service and installation services, proposed equipment, and tiered pricing. If bidding on a group of communities that partnered together, the number of individual communities within the group will count toward the maximum number of communities an installer can bid on.
