Madison and Middleton have launched the MadiSUN Solar Group Buy program to help residents invest in solar electric systems in their homes.

Through the program, a team of community members requests offers from solar companies across the region. The program pre-qualifies a price and a service provider.

Households can receive a federal tax credit for 30 percent of the system cost, and Wisconsin’s Focus on Energy program offers up to $2,000 in additional rebates.

The program, through its contractor RENEW Wisconsin, is recruiting households to participate. Six educational events will help people learn more about solar energy.

Madison is partnering with Summit Credit Union to offer a Solar Energy Loan Program, which allows residents to finance a solar electric system with no fees or collateral. For more information, go to summitcreditunion.com or call 800-236-0985.
