Iowa County is the latest Wisconsin county to be eligible for a solar group buy administered through Legacy Solar Co-op.
Participants in the Iowa County Solar Group Buy program receive education, a property specific solar report and special pricing and financing options to help them select and install solar on their home or small business.
There is no cost to participate and those who choose to purchase solar through the group buy receive special rates and financing options.
Legacy Solar Co-op, a member-owned co-op with a mission to bring solar to Wisconsin, has teamed up with Iowa County CLEA-N, a program sponsored by the Driftless Area Land Conservancy dedicated to helping county residents pursue a green energy future.
“The Iowa County solar group buy is spot-on with the goals of our CLEA-N program. CLEA-N strives to lower energy costs, reduce fossil fuel reliance and keep energy dollars in the local community. That’s exactly what small scale solar does!” – Chuck Tennessen, Driftless Area Land Conservancy – Climate & Energy Coordinator
Legacy Solar Co-op selected local installer, Timmerman’s Talents, to be the installer partner for this program. LSC is also working with greenpenny, a virtual and carbon-neutral bank, to offer financing options.
“Usually, folks are on their own when installing and financing a solar project,” states greenpenny V.P., Jason MacDuff. “Participating in Legacy Solar Co-op’s program makes it easier to gain the benefits of renewable energy generation. Whether you want to install a solar system for its climate stewardship, its economic upside, or both.”
