BROUGHT TO YOU BY
The Madison County Resource Management Program and the cities of Belleville and Columbia fully support the Solarize Metro East Program. The Program followed a standard competitive public RFP process coordinated by the Midwest Renewable Energy Association (MREA) to select a solar provider. The final decision whether to contract a solar installation is that of the home or commercial property owner. The Madison County Resource Management Program and the cities of Belleville and Columbia have no legal responsibility or hold any liability for the performance of any contract between the solar installer and residents or businesses in Madison County or St. Clair County.
