About Legacy Solar Co-op
Solar power builds resiliency in our neighborhoods and encourages us to be good stewards of our air, water and earth. Solar energy is reliable technology with long-term benefits. This is true for individuals, communities and organizations committed to making financially and ecologically sound decisions.
Who is the Legacy Solar Co-op?
Legacy Solar Co-op is a Wisconsin-based, member-owned cooperative providing solar and energy efficiency products and services. Our goal is to bring people together to support local and statewide solar and other clean energy initiatives.
We believe that the future of our planet depends on taking action now. The “Legacy” in Legacy Solar Co-op refers to the endurance of the solar projects we support, which will last for 4 decades or more. It’s also a reference to the collective contribution we make towards a clean, renewable energy supply for our communities.
Our Vision and Mission
To build a sustainable legacy that helps protect the earth through the growth of solar energy. We believe that local control and local ownership of energy projects is the best way to build economic justice and resiliency in our communities.

Switch-to-Solar (S2S) program
Not everyone can have a solar array on their roof. Renewable Energy Credits (RECs) sold through our S2S program are an affordable and easy way to support the development of solar where you live. Starting at just $10 a month, offset your energy use by buying RECs produced by local solar producers.
