Auction Off Your Sunny, Unused Roof Space


SolarRoofIs your roof just sitting there? We at Walker Engineering are looking at Gridbid to solve some of that.  Launching nationwide June 15, is a website where homeowners can put their roofs up for auction for use by one of the U.S.’s 4,000 solar power installer companies. Interested companies will bid on a rooftop, then roof-owners choose a winner based on the best deal.
