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 join us Tuesday, February 20th  from 7:00-8:30 p.m. at the Wilmette Public Library for 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. Non-Wilmette residents are invited!  Doors open at 6:30 p.m.

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.
