Community Solar Array Launch Party at Stave!

February 6 @ 5:00 pm - 8:00 pm

Support the Ecology Action Center and sign up for your own clean, renewable solar energy supply at an affordable rate!

The Ecology Action Center is partnering with StraightUp Solar to promote their Community Solar Array. Community solar is a great way for Ameren customers, who cannot have or do not want a solar array on their own property, to access clean, low cost energy from the sun. StraightUp Solar is offering subscriptions to their ShineMine(™) community solar arrays, to be built this year. The Ecology Action Center is helping get people in Bloomington-Normal signed up because solar makes sense for the environment, makes sense for the subscriber (lower energy costs) and makes sense for the Ecology Action Center because StraightUp Solar is making a contribution to the EAC when you sign up!

Join the Ecology Action Center at Stave Wine Bar & Market on Wednesday, February 6 from 5-8pm to enjoy a libation, learn more about community solar, and get signed up (bring a copy of your Ameren bill with you)!

Show your support for solar energy development and the Ecology Action Center with a community solar subscription. For more information on the community solar subscriptions, please contact: Larissa Armstrong, Ecology Action Center Assistant Director at 309-454-3169  x 15.
