Contrary to stereotypes of the gloomy, cloudy Midwest, Milwaukee, and Wisconsin in general, are very conducive to effective use of solar energy, and in fact have developed into leaders in the country in that field.
That fact will be highlighted during Milwaukee Solar Week, Sept. 28- Oct. 2. Milwaukee Shines, the city of Milwaukee’s solar program, will team with the Midwest Renewable Energy Association (MREA) and other organizations and businesses to showcase renewable energy successes and opportunities during the week.
We Energies and Focus on Energy also are hosting solar events during the week. Milwaukee Shines is coordinating the week.
