The Grow Solar Central Wisconsin program will extend its program deadline to Nov. 30 to allow more individual home and commercial property owners to take advantage of competitive prices for solar installations through the power of volume purchasing.

Demand for the program – open to property owners in Lincoln, Marathon, Portage, Wood and Waushara counties – has been high, with 18 properties committing to add over 100 kilowatts of solar, resulting in lower prices for all participants.
