SCPW Solar sponsors and Steering Committee members have been in the planning stages since April 2019. In June 2019, their efforts culminated in a request for proposals for potential contractors, and the beginning of a streamlined and affordable solar experience for Summit and Wasatch County homeowners.  The project timeline is as follows:

  • July 5, 2019 – Solar contractors submitted bids
  • July 11th, 2019 – Interviews with bidders
  • July 11th, 2019 – Volunteer citizen members of the Steering Committee selected the contractor
  • July 30, 2019 – SCPW Solar Launch Party (Alpine Distilling)
  • July 30 – December 13, 2019 – Official SCPW Solar enrollment
  • August – May 1st, 2020 – Official SCPW Solar commitment period; solar installations will begin on a first-come, first-served basis. 
  • May 31, 2020* – Last day for SCPW Solar Participants to commit to installing solar at bulk-purchase rates.

DISCLAIMER: Eligible homeowners who desire to participate in the Summit Community Power Works (SCPW) Solar Program will work directly with the selected installer to get a bid based on the size, location and energy use of their home. Homeowners who decide to install solar will contract directly with the installer – SCPW and Utah Clean Energy (UCE) will not be a party to the contract – and the panels will be installed on a first-come, first-served basis. Participating homeowners are solely responsible for negotiating and agreeing upon the terms of the contracts and related payment and financing arrangements. SCPW and UCE are not in a position to make, and do not make, any representations or guarantees about the installer or their work. Participating homeowners need to do their own due diligence and be satisfied that the installer can and will provide the homeowner with what the homeowner needs and expects. As a condition of participation in the SCPW Solar Program, and acknowledging SCPW and UCE’s role as facilitators of the discount Program, all participating homeowners agree to release SCPW and UCE from, and agree that SCPW and UCE will not have any responsibility or liability for: (i) the work performed by an Installer, (ii) any payment or financing related to such work, and (iii) any claim that may arise in connection with any of the contracts between a homeowner and the installer.
