The sun is shining for homeowners and commercial property owners across Sauk County, as the Solar Sauk County (https://www.growsolar.org/solar-sauk-county/) program commences this March. The program allows individual home and commercial property owners to access lower prices for solar installations through the power of volume purchasing.
Sauk County, UW-Extension, Sauk Area Climate Awareness and Action (SACAA), Spring Green Area Chamber of Commerce, and The Social District are supporting the bulk solar group purchase program for residents and businesses in Sauk County. This program will reduce carbon emissions while providing residents with the opportunity to invest in their own high quality renewable energy solar installation with potentially significant savings on installation cost.
The program is administered by the Midwest Renewable Energy Association (MREA) at no cost to the county. This type of program has been successful in other jurisdictions in Wisconsin, Illinois, and Iowa, and as seen in neighboring Iowa County as well as Milwaukee, Cedar Rapids, Urbana-Champaign, Bloomington-Normal, and elsewhere.
“Over the past several years we have helped educate thousands of property owners all over the Midwest about solar,” said Peter Murphy, Solar Program Manager for MREA. “There’s a huge demand for information about solar, and folks are learning that it’s no longer an inaccessible technology of the future, but rather it’s available to them right now.”
***Over the next few months MREA will provide free, public, one-hour long educational sessions called Solar Power Hours all over Sauk County for prospective participants to learn how solar energy works and to answer questions. The program’s website, SolarSaukCounty.com, includes the complete list of upcoming Solar Power Hours. On the website you will also find a sign up form that area residents can fill out for an estimate, or to receive general program updates and Solar Power Hour announcements.
