UrbanRe works with clients from the early stages of investigating renewable energy systems by performing certified solar site assessments to determine a property’s renewable energy potential, as well as system installation and interconnection to the We Energies electric grid. We Energies is offering a matching grant to non-profits to install renewable energy systems in addition to the incentives received from the Focus on Energy Program.
