What is a Solar Group Buy?
MREA has been hosting Solar Group Buy programs throughout the midwest since 2013, connecting communities with resources to use their collective buying power to save on the total cost of going solar. The purpose of a Group Buy program (also known as a Solarize program) is to increase education of local residents about solar photovoltaics (PV), and increase market penetration of residential and small commercial solar PV through a group purchasing program.
Between 2013 and 2020, the MREA facilitated forty-two Solar Group Buy programs around the Midwest, educating over 10,000 individuals with our Solar Power Hour information sessions, and leading to more than 14,000 kW on over 1,900 properties.
Due to COVID-19 all Solar Power Hour information sessions will be held digitally via ZOOM.
