Solar Assessment

Find out if solar is right for your community, organization, or business. Our solar assessments include a survey of your building’s energy use and a site evaluation to help you decide if a solar array works for you.

If you know you are ready for a solar assessment of your project or property, request a pre-qualification solar assessment.

Client Advocacy

We are client advocates, working to assure that you have a smooth and successful solar project.

We connect you with local vendors who care deeply about the same things you do and we offer advice learned from dozens of solar projects, large and small.

Our goal is to make sure that everyone we work with gets the service and products they need.

Presentations to Stakeholders

We can assist with education on solar arrays and project presentations to address the concerns of your organization members.

Request for Proposals

If your organization requires RFPs to find vendors, we can help you prepare them and analyze the results.

Energy Efficiency Monitoring

Even after you’ve added solar to your building or site, there’s often more you can do to save energy. We help you monitor your energy use and find ways to save even more money on your utility bills.

Financing your solar project

We can help you or your business or nonprofit navigate your options for funding your solar project. Get in touch to begin your journey to solar!

  • Apply for Grants

    We help members and nonmembers navigate grant options – even write applications.

  • Unique solar financing model

    Through the sale of solar bonds or tax-financing we can help make solar projects affordable and lower up-front expenses.

  • IRA Bridge Loans

    Some organizations may be eligible for a bridge loan so you can get your project underway while awaiting IRA benefits or other funding sources.

What Our Clients Say

Legacy Solar Co-op helped our organization to identify a variety of grants and tax credits that ultimately made it possible for us to install a solar array on our co-op. We did not know all of the opportunities for funding that were available or how they could all be leveraged to support our project. We would not have pursued this project without the support of Legacy Solar Co-op!

Gabrielle HinaharaPerennial Co-op

The folks from Legacy Solar Co-op conducted a site visit and walked us through the entires process, including incentives and working with the contractor. They…helped us forecast expenses and expected returns.

Dan TaivalkoskiThe Racine County Food Bank

The staff of Legacy Solar were invaluable in numerous ways to our project, and we would not have pursued the project or been successful in our project, without their help. We would highly recommend them.

Tom RislowPine Valley Community Village

Tony and Kurt stuck with our church through the variety of questions that come up in the process of doing a large new project like this. They were always willing to communicate with us or come to us in person if needed. We valued their assistance.
