Southeast Wisconsin Solar Group Buy Committee Members:
Brian Gleichauf is a science and math teacher, lover of the outdoors and passionate about restoration and regeneration as a way of living. He realized his dream of installing solar panels in 2019, and has been part of the SWSGB leadership since then. He rides his bike whenever he can, and drives his used electric car when he needs to. He keeps bees, raises chickens, grows as much of his own food as he can, and would hug a tree.
Cara Pratt serves on the board of Greening Greater Racine. By day, she works as the very first Sustainability and Conservation Coordinator for the City of Racine under the personal motto “maximize our positive impact on communities, minimize our negative impact on ecosystems.” Outside of work, Cara finds joy in gardening, home improvement projects, soccer, and vegan cooking.
Joe Dubaniewicz is a new resident of Wisconsin, now living in the Village of Somers. Joe moved into his ranch style home in late 2015 and in 2016 he installed a heat pump to supply the HVAC needs of the home with electricity (except for the very coldest days of winter). So, it seemed logical to add rooftop solar, which he added in late 2017 with 18 panels on our southwest roof. To subtract more from his carbon footprint, Joe added a Chevy BOLT EV at that same time and is very happy with all of his environmental sustainable purchases.
