Powered by the Midwest Renewable Energy Association, Grow Solar is a coordinated effort among Midwest organizations and municipalities to build an open and advantageous solar market that provides long-term benefits to communities. Through its Solar Group Buy for home and business owners, Solar Toolkits for city, county, community and electric utility leaders, and Technical Assistance for institutions, Grow Solar makes investments in solar faster, easier, and more affordable.
Solar Group Buys
Public education and bulk purchasing opportunity for home and business owners
Through partnerships with jurisdictions and local nonprofit organizations and volunteers, solar group buys couple public solar education with the power of bulk purchasing to make going solar easier and more affordable for Midwestern home and business owners.
Resources for local governments and communities, utilities, and other leaders
Our solar toolkits are a set of resources to assist city, county, community and electric utility leaders in the implementation of solar program best practices. They provide information to navigate permitting, planning, and zoning in Illinois, Iowa, Minnesota, and Wisconsin.
Technical Assistance for institutions, including universities, cities, hospitals, and schools
With more than two decades of experience in solar energy projects, the Midwest Renewable Energy Association (MREA) is now offering technical assistance to help institutions develop highest value, lowest cost solar photovoltaic (PV) projects.
The goal of these group buys is to increase solar education and installations in around the Midwest through group purchase involving free information sessions and a competitive selection process.
