Chosen Installers

LSC and the Western Dane County Solar Group Buy Selection Committee are proud to announce that the installers chosen for this year’s group buy are All Sky Energy of Baraboo and Eagle Point Solar, which has offices in Iowa, Illinois and Wisconsin. These two companies partnered to present a proposal that was professional and competitive.

How the Group Buy Works

A group buy program typically offers lower rates than individually developed solar projects because of competitive bidding and economy of scale (read more). It consists of the following steps:

  1.  Participate in an educational event / ask questions
  2.  Sign up for an assessment:
  3.  Contract proposal, signing and project schedule
  4.  Installation
