Residents, businesses, farms, and non-profits in the Metro East have an opportunity to learn more about solar energy and participate in affordable solar through a new program called Solarize Metro East. The program builds on the success of last year’s Solarize Madison County, where nearly 500 individuals attended free solar education sessions and 40 property owners added around 300 kW of solar to their properties in 2017.
Solarize Metro East is administered by the Midwest Renewable Energy Association (MREA) at no cost to local governments. This type of program has been successful in other jurisdictions in Illinois, Iowa, and Wisconsin, and as seen in Madison County as well as Urbana-Champaign, Bloomington-Normal, Milwaukee, and Cedar Rapids. A free educational session will be held on July 10, 2018 at 6pm in the Columbia City Hall auditorium. See the attached flyer for more information.
