Save on Solar Kiester!

This workshop is to highlight the Minnesota Renewable Energy Society's Solar Hot Water/Air Heat Group Purchasing Program, Make Mine Solar. Participants will learn the basics of energy efficiency, solar hot water and solar air heat technology, how the group purchase program works, rebates, incentives and financing. Propane users and farms with lots of hot water use (dairy farms) will get an extra fast payback from a solar system.
Everyone will get a chance to meet the installers and talk to them one on one about their project. It is recommended participants get a site assessment before the workshop so they can bring it along to demonstrate their site better to the installers. Go here to sign up for a virtual, low cost site assessment to get you started on the process.
