Grow Solar

Grow Solar is a partnership of Midwest organizations and municipalities working to build a solar market that provides long-term benefits to communities. With leadership from the Midwest Renewable Energy Association, we provide resources and professional development to reduce the time/expense related to solar installations, grow a professional solar workforce, and showcase model programs and projects.

And if you are a  Code Official, Electrical Inspector, or Installer, you’ll find information to help you tool up for the growing solar market.
