MREA, WFU Hosting More Solar Power Info Meetings
Wisconsin Ag Connection - 06/18/2015

The Midwest Renewable Energy Association and Wisconsin Farmers Union are teaming up to host more 'Power Hour' seminars around the state in the coming weeks.

The hour-long presentations will cover economic benefits of solar energy, basics of a solar photovoltaic system, market trends and the step-by-step process to determine if solar is right for your farm, home or business. Attendees will also have the opportunity to visit with solar installers working locally.

"Now is a great time for farmers and rural businesses, as well as homeowners, to consider solar installations," said WFU Special Projects Coordinator Sarah Lloyd. "We invite people to attend the Power Hour and join our commitment to a distributed system of electric generation that puts people and communities in a good position."

The workshops are part of the Farmers Union's efforts to support renewable energy possibilities. In addition to these educational opportunities for individual installations, WFU also supports community efforts to promote and enact clean energy, as well as state and national level policies that support and incentivize renewable energy.

The meetings will be held July 2 at Michael Fields Agricultural Institute in East Troy; and on July 9 at the Hungry Turtle Farm and Learning Center, Amery.
