The City of Madison is in its 3rd year of the solar trainee installer program. The 2018 class of solar installers (Hattie, Valerie and Eric) stopped by the studio to talk about their experiences on the rooftops of Madison. Matt Parks and Will McMahon of the City of Madison Engineering Department explained that the City plans to install 1 MW of solar on its own rooftops!
Check out the City of Madison’s solar projects at this link – you can see a map of all the projects and the power they generate.
There will be another opportunity to apply to be a City solar trainee next winter, but in the meantime you can sign up for training opportunities at the Midwest Renewable Energy Association. And check out the Energy Fair June 15-17 in Custer WI – just outside of Stevens Point.
