GROW SOLAR ST. LOUIS IS AN EDUCATION AND GROUP PURCHASING PROGRAM
FOR RESIDENTIAL SOLAR.
Offered by the Missouri Botanical Garden and the Midwest Renewable Energy Association, property owners throughout the City and County of St. Louis, Clayton, Maplewood, Richmond Heights, and University City may participate in this pilot program to help pool their buying power to secure significant discounts that make installing solar more affordable.
Start by attending a Solar Power Hour. Our free information session teaches you the basics of solar, its financial implications for your property, and how the Grow Solar St. Louis program works. Then, get a free, no obligation site assessment from our competitively-selected installer, StraightUp Solar.
The Solar Power Hour calendar and program updates will be posted on this page on an ongoing basis.
In the news: KDHX Earthworms host Jean Ponzi talks with Chris Krusa of Grow Solar Metro East and Lisa Cagle of Grow Solar St. Louis about incentives and efficiencies bringing clean, renewable solar power – affordably – to the STL region. Listen here!
Update 12/1/2020: With your help 71 homes went solar this year putting 424 KW of clean, renewable energy into St. Louis City and St. Louis County. In their first year, these arrays are calculated to reduce CO2 emissions 821,810 pounds by avoiding 407,518 pounds (2 rail cars) of coal consumption. For tree supporters, this carbon offset is the equivalent of annual carbon sequestration from a 439 acre forest (Source: EPA Greenhouse Gas Emissions Equivalencies Calculator).
Update 10/11/19: Last month we hit our first benchmark of 50 kilowatts (kW) of solar capacity, and we are rapidly approaching our next collective goal of 150 kW! When we reach 150 kW the price will drop for all participants by 2%.
