‘Solar Power Hours’ educate residents on the benefits of solar powered homes

LA CROSSE, Wis. (WKBT) – La Crosse County is working toward a sustainable future.

The county passed a resolution that aims to improve efficiency to reduce energy consumption with the goal of achieving carbon neutrality and transitioning to 100% renewable energy by 2050.

Together, the city and county are encouraging residents to help achieve this goal through the ‘Grow Solar La Crosse’ program.

Grow Solar is offering free, virtual educational sessions called ‘Solar Power Hours’.

It covers the basics of solar, how it can save people money, and how it can be installed.

“We want to educate people about solar, if you decide to go solar this year or in five years, the point of the Solar Power Hours is to arm you with the right information, knowledge, and tools to make that informed decision, whenever it might be,” said Marta Monti, Solar Program Manager.

The next session is on September 10th from 3 pm to 4 pm.
