ABOUT SOLAR TWIN CITIES
Offered by The Midwest Renewable Energy Association (MREA) for homeowners, nonprofits, and commercial property owners across the Twin Cities metro. Program participants are being given the opportunity to aggregate their solar purchase power to achieve program milestones that result in rebates that make solar more affordable.
MREA hosted 15 FREE Solar Power Hour information sessions with support from communities including the City of Eden Prairie, Oakdale, Maplewood, Minneapolis, Minnetonka, Plymouth, Richfield, Roseville, St Louis Park, White Bear Lake, and the City of Woodbury.
At the Solar Power Hours attendees learned about the basics of solar, its financial implications, available incentives, and how the Solar Twin Cities group purchasing program works. Those interested were offered a chance to get a free no obligation solar site assessment from our installer, TruNorth Solar. In addition, the Center for Energy and Environment (CEE) shared helpful information about opportunities to improve energy efficiency and financing options during the Solar Power Hours.
