The "Solarize Godfrey" sessions, which have been scheduled to educate Godfrey residents and business owners about the benefits of going solar, have resulted in a number of requests for proposals by Godfrey citizens and business owners.  The Community Bulk Solar outreach campaign may be extended, as the director of the village's green efforts sees the potential to grow Godfrey's solar community.

With the program, solar bulk purchase pricing is available to home and business owners in the Village of Godfrey.  Nate Keener, Chair of the village's Climate Protection and Energy Efficiency Committee, tells The Big Z they are basing the request for an extension of the program on a similar situation in the Champaign - Urbana area

Keener says a business could conceivably be eligible for incentives that could cover the entire cost of going solar.  He says 65 people have attended the solarization meetings, with 20 proposals currently being considered, and 3 agreements signed.  To learn more, call 466-3381.
