Green Greater Racine Partners with Great Lakes Community Conservation Corps

Greening Greater Racine (GGR) was created to develop Racine into a more healthy and sustainable place for people and all organisms to live. Southeast Wisconsin Solar Group Buy (SWSGB) was developed by the energy committee of Greening Greater Racine to increase solar education and installations in Southeast Wisconsin through a group purchase and competitive bidding process. Great Lakes Community Conservation Corps (GLCCC) allows training and education for underprivileged youth to help improve the environment through sustainability and restoration projects in southeastern Wisconsin. These two groups (SWSGB and GLCCC) are partnering together to provide families the opportunity to generate their own electricity.

Here’s how you can benefit:

Everyone: Save 18% – 21% from the reduced cost of marketing for the contractor. Plus, Wisconsin’s Focus on Energy program provides a grant for solar panel installation that’s 12% of installation cost of up to $4000.00 ($2000.00 for Homeowners/Landlords, and less for east-west facing solar panels.)

Homeowners and small businesses: A low interest loan program from the Racine Energy Efficiency Program (REEP). Additionally, in 2019, a federal tax credit of 30% was made available. 

Businesses only: Tax depreciation continues for five more years on the 30% tax credit. 

Non-profits and small businesses: Benefit from low interest loans for long term payments (up to 20 – 30 years) from the Racine County Property Assessed Clean Energy program (PACE) with no income limit. 

By working with us you’re not only saving a lot of time and money, you’re also taking a concrete step to address the incredibly negative impacts of coal on human health and on our environment!

 

“We were so pleased with our solar panels. They were installed cleanly, properly and efficiently. We have noticed a big decrease in our monthly utility bills. I would strongly urge anyone with an interest in saving money to consider this.”
