CU Solar Power Hour – Uncover how to integrate solar into your home, business, or public building

CHAMPAIGN (Nov 19, 2013): The Illinois Green Business Association is partnering with the Green Institute at Heartland Community College, Illinois Green Economy Network, the Midwest Renewable Energy Association to bring the Illinois Power Pack program presentation, connecting residents, businesses, and public entities, which will assist in navigating implementation and finance opportunities to increase adoption of solar energy systems in Champaign County. The event will take place at Cafeteria and Company (208 W. Main St, Urbana) November 19th from 5:30-7:30 p.m.

The Illinois Power Pack is an innovative financing and solar market development program first implemented in Milwaukee, WI. The program provides lower cost solar installation for customers, more leads and more jobs for installers, more business for local companies and builds on the existing renewable energy initiatives at Illinois community colleges.

The Illinois Power Pack provides a unique solar purchasing program that promotes local businesses and local manufacturing and provides free 1 hour Power Hour sessions.  The Power Hours provide information on the basics about solar, current incentives, how to get a site assessment, and contacts for financial institutions and trained and qualified solar installers.

The Green Institute at Heartland Community College is hosting 3 Power Hours in November for different community populations.   All the Power Hours are free thanks to funding from the Illinois Green Economy Network, but registration is encouraged.

November 19th
5:30 p.m. -7:30 p.m.
