For Installers

We are dedicated to an open and transparent and vibrant solar market. We applaud companies that are based in DC and strongly encourage our members to work with companies that employ DC residents.

While we don’t pick preferred installers, we’re happy to get to know you and share our knowledge of your company with our membership. Contact us and let us know more about your company.

We periodically issue RFPs on behalf of DC SUN members. If you would like to be notified about upcoming RFPs, sign up here.

We also periodically conduct evaluations of consumer experiences with installers, and share that info with our membership. Our members freely share their experiences on our listserve. We also often will share bids in order to promote transparency in the market place. We encourage you to join the listserve and help answer questions and share information related to solar installations. We ask, though, that you refrain from advertising on the list.
