Missouri Botanical Garden is helping local residents to learn more about going solar.
The botanical garden has teamed up with Washington University in Saint Louis and the Midwest Renewable Energy Association for the Grow Solar St. Louis programme.
The programme offers information sessions designed to make it easy for local residents who are interested in installing solar at their homes.
Prroperty owners throughout the City of St. Louis, St. Louis County, and St. Charles County may participate in the programme to help pool their buying power to secure significant discounts that make installing solar more affordable.
Residents sart on the programme by attending a virtual Solar Power Hour. The free virtual information session teaches the basics of solar, its financial implications for a property, and how the Grow Solar St. Louis programme works.
After attending the virtual Solar Power Hour, residents are entitled to a free, no obligation site assessment from grow solar installers, StraightUp Solar.
Since launching last year, more than 70 participants have installed solar panels.
Missouri Botanical Garden believes that encouraging clean energy, the garden is helping clean up the planet for plants and people.
Grow Solar St. Louis are currently offering Virtual solar power hours on selected days through to August.
