Powering Your Home With the Sun

Topics To Discuss:

Join local Deer Park resident and ISEA Solar Ambassador Peter Gorr as he presents “Powering Your Home with the Sun”. This thirty minute 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 called Community Solar. This program is available to any rate payer in Illinois. It is simple as it is a subscription program that doesn’t require the purchase or installation of equipment and saves money.

About the speaker:
Peter Gorr lives in Deer Park and is an elected member of the Illinois 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.

This event will be hybrid, for those who are unable to attend in person. 

Pre-registration is required for Zoom attendance, but not for in-person attendance.
