Exploring Community Solar

Are you interested in using solar energy but can’t install a system on your own roof? Go Green Wilmette and the Wilmette Community Solar Project invite you to a Town Hall meeting to discuss the benefits of community solar to residents in the Wilmette area and beyond. Learn how you can support clean energy while saving money.

Our guest speaker from Trajectory Energy Partners will define community solar and detail how land owners, communities, businesses, and residents can work together to create a community solar project. We will invite community input and engage in a discussion about the opportunities for a Wilmette project. If you would like to subscribe to a community solar project someday, you can (without obligation) sign on and join a growing list of area residents who are seriously interested in becoming community solar subscribers. Sign on here:  http://www.wilmettecommunitysolar.org

Join us Tuesday, February 20th  from 7:00-8:30 p.m. at the Wilmette Public Library for this exciting conversation about the future of solar in Illinois. Non-Wilmette residents are invited!  Doors open at 6:30 p.m.
