Solar Urbana-Champaign 3.0 launches

Posted by Morgan White on May 15, 2018

Solar Urbana-Champaign is back with version 3.0! 

  • New options for renters, homeowners, commercial property owners, businesses, and farm owners.
  • Now available in Piatt County in addition to Champaign County.
  • Solar Power Hour presentations all summer long.
  • September 30 sign-up deadline.
  • Solar Power Hour kick-off events: Wednesday, May 16 in Urbana and Thursday, May 17 in Monticello (see below).

The successful Solar Urbana-Champaign group purchasing program is available again in 2018. Since 2016, the program has led to the installation of over 1 megawatt of solar on 138 properties across Champaign County. The program has educated hundreds of individuals about solar and helped people save on solar through volume purchasing.
Now, the program expands eligibility to Piatt County residents as well as Champaign County residents. And, thanks to new state legislation, even more people can get access to solar.
Start by attending a Solar Power Hour (full calendar below). This free information session teaches you the basics of solar, its financial implications for your household, and how the solar group buy program works. Then, get a free, no obligation site assessment from the competitively selected solar installer for Solar Urbana-Champaign 3.0.
This program was brought to you by the City of Urbana, Prairie Rivers Network, and the Midwest Renewable Energy Assocation. We welcome everyone to help spread the word!
If you have any questions or concerns, please let us know by responding directly to this email. Shine on!
