Solar East Side is happening now! Schedule a free site assessment before September 15.

What is a Solar Group Buy? A solar group buy is when community members form a group and use their collective buying power to save on the total cost of going solar. The Solar East Side program can help residents invest in lower cost solar installations through the power of volume purchasing. 

The MREA partners with the City of Milwaukee's Milwaukee Shines program, along with the Murray Hill Neighborhood Association, Colectivo Coffee, and 91.7 WMSE. Successful group buys have been run in Riverwest, Bay View, Layton Boulevard West, and Washington Heights. 





Solar LBWN & Washington Heights (2014): 13 home & business owners installed 48 kW

Solar Bay View (2014): 38 homeowners installing 138 kW

Solar Riverwest (2013): 17 homeowners installing 52 kW

Total Milwaukee Installs = 238 kW
