The Midwest Renewable Energy Association and Partners Mark Fifth Successful Buy
The Midwest Renewable Energy Association (MREA), with partners Milwaukee Shines, the Murray Hill Neighborhood Association and Arch Electric, totaled 84 kW in solar installations through the Solar East Side group buy program—enough power to produce 100,800 kW hours per year and offset 225,792 pounds of carbon dioxide produced from a coal-fired power plant. A total of 26 homeowners participated to make this the fifth successful solar group buy.
Combined with previous group buys, which include the neighborhoods of Washington Heights, Layton Boulevard West, Bay View and Riverwest, the ongoing program is responsible for 92 home and business owners installing a total of 322 kW. Solar group buy programs are open to all residents of Southeast Wisconsin and reduce the cost of going solar through the power of volume purchasing.
