MREA Solar Canopy Case Study
In 2018, with generous support from MREA Members, donors, and partners, we achieved our Driving on Sunshine campaign goals and installed a new solar canopy and PV + EV Demonstration at our headquarters in Custer, WI. The solar canopy houses a variety of electric vehicle chargers open to the public year round—all powered by sunshine.
