Are you interested in going solar? Start by attending a free virtual Solar Power Hour with Grow Solar Metro East. The Midwest Renewable Energy Association hosts a free virtual information session that teaches you the basics of solar, its financial implications for your property, and how the Grow Solar Metro East program works. Then, get a free, no obligation site assessment from our competitively-selected installer, StraightUp Solar.
Offered by the Lewis & Clark Community College, Glen Carbon Cool Cities Committee, Sierra Club, Godfrey Climate Protection and Energy Efficiency Committee, and the MREA, we invite home and commercial property owners throughout Calhoun County, Madison County, St. Clair County, and Monroe County, Illinois to participate in this program to help pool their buying power to secure significant discounts that make installing solar more affordable. The program builds on previous years of successful programs that helped over 160 local property owners go solar.
