    Bay Area SunShares - Solar Procurement Program

    The San Francisco Business Council on Climate Change (BC3), a fiscally sponsored project of Community Initiatives, a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization, is seeking qualified firms, on behalf of its Bay Area SunShares Program (SunShares), to submit proposals for the design, procurement and installation of residential solar photovoltaic (“PV”) systems based upon the scope of work contained in this Request for Proposals (“RFP”).


    The goal of the 2019 SunShares program is to drive adoption of both residential solar and zero emission vehicles (ZEV) in the San Francisco Bay Area through a partnership focused on localized marketing efforts, which in turn will help to reduce the cost of solar through a limited-time group procurement model.

    To be considered for selection as a Provider for this program, please review the attached RFP documents, and submit per the enclosed instructions no later than 5:00 PM, May 10, 2019.
