Grow Solar Metro East is back in 2020! Offered by the Lewis & Clark Community College, Glen Carbon Cool Cities Committee, Sierra Club, Godfrey Climate Protection and Energy Efficiency Committee, and the Midwest Renewable Energy Association, we invite home and commercial property owners throughout Calhoun County, Madison County, St. Clair County, and Monroe County, Illinois to participate in this program to help pool their buying power to secure significant discounts that make installing solar more affordable. The program builds on previous years of successful programs that helped over 160 local property owners go solar.
