The intermonomer interaction effect on electromagnetically induced transparency (EIT) in dipole-coupled dimer models with different orientations and intermonomer distances is investigated. The absorption properties are evaluated using the imaginary part of the dynamic polarizability α calculated by the quantum master equation method. It is found that EIT can be observed even in the dimer systems with near-degenerate excited states originating in an intermonomer interaction by adjusting the incident field frequency.
