The next webinar of the Morris and Southwest Prairie Solar Co-op will be held from 7 to 8:30 p.m. Wednesday, September 9 at solarunitedneighbors.org, or you can Google Southwest Prairie solar coop to get there. Morris Model member Eric Buchanan of the West Central Research and Outreach Center in Morris said that the webinar is a good place to learn some of the basics of solar energy.

“It’s sort of a basic introduction,” said Buchanan. “So, even if you don’t think you want to put solar panels on your roof but you want to learn a little bit more about how solar works and how it’s done, we’re going to go from a very basic level talking about how that process works and how it might benefit you and what the costs are. So, a lot of general information.”

Participants can also find out about the payback period for putting up solar panels, and if solar is right for your home or business.
