Solar Riverwest is in full effect! Customers have committed to 8 systems at a total of 25.5 kW. There are still several dozen more proposals pending, so this number has the potential to at least double. See the map below for a quick look at our progress. Construction is set to start on the first 2 systems on Monday July 22nd. Keep an eye out for Solar Riverwest yard signs in front of participants’ homes.
H&H Solar Energy Services is our contractor. They are based out of Madison, and were the best qualified installer given the uncertainty associated with this project. It was unclear from the start if we would be contracting for 20 Kw or 150 Kw. Additionally, because of the requirements of ME2, 40% of H&H’s labor on the Solar Riverwest installations will come from underemployed or unemployed City of Milwaukee residents. That means your household’s switch to renewable energy has already put 2 electricians from our community to work!
