MREA Hosts Wisconsin Solar Tour
Midwest Renewable Energy Association (MREA) is organizing a free statewide Wisconsin Solar Tour as part of the 22nd annual American Solar Energy Society (ASES) national Solar Tour. From 10 a.m. to 4 p.m., October 7, participants can tour a variety of sites and see first hand how Wisconsin residents are reducing their monthly energy bills, cutting harmful carbon emissions and improving their property values. In addition, the Wisconsin Solar Tour will feature sites that have recently gone solar through MREA’s Solar Group Buy Programs.
In 2016 The Wisconsin Solar Tour contributed 64 sites and 259 participants to the self-guided National Solar Tour. In recent years, the National Solar Tour attracted more than 150,000 people in 49 U.S. states and Puerto Rico. National Solar Tours afford participants the direct perspectives of homeowners and installers about the costs, processes and economic and environmental benefits of going solar. The National Solar Tours also gives Wisconsinites a glimpse at how a variety of solar systems look in and around structures with different architectural styles.
