Grow Solar is a collaborative effort to make solar affordable for private home owners as well as businesses.

Check out their website

You will find plenty of resources for municipalities, industry professionals and homeowners right here in central Wisconsin.

Many installations already have been done on homes and businesses in these counties: Portage, Wood, Waupaca and Marathon.

MREA (Midwest Renewable Energy Association) and Mid-State Technical College are leading this group buy program.

You can attend a free Solar Power Hour and learn the basics of solar, its costs for your household and how the program works. You also can get a free, no obligation site assessment from the installer. You have until October 15 to decide whether solar is for you.
