Solar Panel Installation Program

The City of South Miami in 2015 completed a competitive bid process for Solar Panel Installation.  The objective was for the City to obtain the best possible pricing from one Solar Installer and the installer would be required to honor the pricing and provide residents which are interested in installing Solar Panels with the negotiated rate. The City received responses from two contractors; Goldin Solar, LLC and Urban Solar Group.  Click on any of the two vendors to view their respective proposals.

The City of South Miami has successfully negotiated, volume and discounted pricing for solar panel installation with Goldin Solar, LLC, (Solar Panel Pricing Sheet). The program includes all types of roofs for both residential and commercial. The selected vendor, Goldin Solar, LLC, is licensed to perform the work, and has been qualified and certified with the YGRENE Green Corridor Financing Program.

YGRENE can provide up to 100% financing to qualified Owners for energy efficiency, renewable energy and water conservation improvements. The decision to utilize YGRENE for financing is solely up to Property Owners, ( Notwithstanding the requirements of the RFP, it is the Owners’ responsibility to confirm certifications, quality, licensing, workers compensation and liability insurance, any other criteria for selection of a vendor and YGRENE certification before entering into an agreement for the work. The City is merely acting as a facilitator and it is not recommending any particular contractor since the City has not evaluated the qualifications of the other Contractors who responded to the RFP.

Residents and commercial property owners will need to contract directly with the contractor for the installation of photovoltaic systems. Payment and/or financing will be the sole responsibility of participating Owners; the City shall have no responsibility or liability for payment to Contractor for goods and services provided. It is the responsibility of the Property Owner to ascertain the existence and applicability of and apply for any government subsidies, tax credits and/or available grants that will offset the installation costs of photovoltaic systems.

The participating Contractor has agreed that their offered program will be made available to the Property Owners for a six (6) month period from the date of the issuance of the Notice to Proceed, June 19, 2015.

The decision to contract for photovoltaic systems is solely at the discretion of the Owners. While the commitment to accept contracts from Owners is limited to six (6) months from the date of the Notice to Proceed, the time for completing the work of constructing and installing the Photovoltaic systems may exceed the six (6) month period of the programs for signing up customers. The establishment of individual project duration, timeline, and the project completion date is the responsibility of the Owner and it is recommended that these considerations be established by agreement between the contractor and the Owner.
