Municipalities in Southeast Michigan can now help their homes and businesses install solar PV by endorsing SEMREO’s cost-effective, high-quality solar installation and financing package. Homeowners interested in solar energy may hesitate because of the need to choose among numerous installers and fast-changing technologies, concerns about reliability of equipment and projected savings, and limited understanding of building codes and other regulations.
SEMREO has assembled a low-cost, turnkey solar photovoltaic (PV) package that includes local providers and installers with optional financing, available exclusively to residents within its member municipalities. By supporting this program, municipalities can increase homeowners’ confidence and reduce their installation costs while supporting local businesses.

Guiding property owners toward high quality, reliable providers and technology will have a multiplier effect, as satisfied customers influence their friends and neighbors to follow suit.
