Milwaukee Shines decided to hold a press conference to announce the solar group buy for Washington Heights. A solar group buy organizes neighborhoods to purchase panels at a discounted rate. Located close to Washington Heights, our home became the example and backdrop to kick-start their latest program. Local neighbors came with questions, while news and TV reporters showed in full force to record Mayor Tom Barrett’s statement on Milwaukee’s renewable progress. I have a tremendous amount of respect for the mayor and it was an honor to meet him and help promote renewable energy.
