    • Barrington Area Library; 505 N Northwest Highway, Barrington, IL 60010

    Join Peter Gorr as he presents “Powering Your Home with the Sun” on February 27 at 7PM at the Barrington Area Public Library.  You can attend the presentation live or virtually. Register at

    Going Solar | Barrington Area Library (librarycalendar.com).

    This hour long, non-technical presentation covers the basics of converting your electric supply to solar generated energy. Whether you own a home or condo or rent, if you pay an electric bill there is something for you in this presentation that will save you money and show you how to move to a clean renewable energy source for your electricity.

    The presentation will cover the basics of residential solar energy systems as well as the installation process, current state and federal financial incentives, and how to get started. Also included is a review of a new program available to residents call Community Solar. This program is available to any rate payer in Illinois. It is a simple subscription program that doesn’t require the purchase or installation of equipment and saves money.

    Peter Gorr lives in Deer Park and is an elected member of the IL Solar Education Association Board of Directors and a member of their Solar Ambassador network. He first installed a Solar Energy system on his Palatine home in 2011 and repeated this when he moved to Deer Park in 2016. His over 10 years of experience provides a solid, fact based foundation for presenting the process, the results, and the benefits of residential solar energy supply options.

    Are you or someone you know considering joining the solar workforce? If so, MREA's Solar Training Academy is the best place to start! ☀️

    With no prerequisites or previous experience required, the Solar Training Academy provides a springboard into the renewable energy field, taking students from “square one” all the way to the NABCEP PV Associate Exam—a sought-after solar credential valued by the industry.

    In this series of courses students start from the ground up learning the basics of working with electricity and photovoltaics (solar electricity), analyzing a site's solar resource, designing placement of all the components in a solar system, and even hands-on training using a mobile training lab. The culmination of the series is the student's eligibility to sit for an industry leading credentialing exam, the NABCEP PV Associate Exam! This entry level credential is a great resume builder and the first step towards more advanced credentialing opportunities. 

    For the first time since the start of the pandemic the MREA has scheduled a full tour of the Midwest and will be traveling to five states and seven different locations! The schedules vary for each location so be sure to visit our website for all the details! www.midwestrenew.org/sta
