RENEW Wisconsin Solar for Good
RENEW Wisconsin’s Solar for Good fosters the expansion of solar power among mission-based nonprofits and houses of worship in Wisconsin.
Through a generous partnership with local philanthropists, Cal and Laurie Couillard, RENEW Wisconsin awards grants to nonprofit organizations to assist them in installing solar PV. Solar for Good also offers small grants for technical assistance to get projects started and see them through to success. Solar for Good helps publicize funded projects to spread the word and educate Wisconsin about the benefits of solar.
In order to receive the grant, the organization must be a registered nonprofit organization located in Wisconsin, be in good financial standing and able to accept donations, and own its building and/or be able to make necessary changes to its roof or property to accommodate solar. Please note that this program is designed to fund mission-based organizations. In addition, organizations receiving grants must agree to participate in educating community members about the benefits of solar energy.
Applications for Spring 2019 grants are closed. Check back for Fall 2019 announcements.

"Working with Energize LLC was wonderful. They were very professional in all the dealings including explaining the system and process. They handled all the paperwork for energy credits and building permit. Due to weather, late in the year (November), there were a couple days where they could not work because of snow on the roof and they always kept us up to date on their plans. They cleaned up after each day and were always very conscientious of everything. It was a pleasure to work with Jim & Barb." - Gary & Nancy
"Many thanks to Jim and Barb for the recent installation of our solar panels! They provided all the details we needed to make a decision about what size system to install. And they answered all of our questions that came afterward! I greatly appreciated their expertise in handling all the applications from our Town, the utility company, and the Focus on Energy program. The process went smoothly from start to finish; the timeline and pricing provided was accurate. We greatly appreciate their attention detail, friendliness, and follow-up after the installation! We would highly recommend Energize to install your solar project!" - Lisa
“It was a wonderful experience working with Barb and Jim on my solar power system! Two consummate professionals with an eye for attention to detail. They went out of there way to ensure I was 100% satisfied with every aspect of my system. I would highly recommend them as a contractor for solar power system installation.” - Pete
"Jim Funk and Energize LLC were great to work with. Our questions, ideas, and concerns were always promptly addressed. Jim pays great attention to detail and was indispensable in sorting through and analyzing the new battery systems on the market to find a good fit for our needs. It has been a lot of work from all of us but totally worth it." -Dave
"Energize LLC is a family based company that makes you feel like you are apart of it! We have 2 small boys and we are very particular about everything we do and Jim and Barb were the best we could work with!! Very friendly, respectful, and loyal! They keep in touch with us to make sure that we are still satisfied and we couldn't be happier with having them apart of our family too! Thanks again guys and we look forward to working with you more in the future!!" - Jane
"I really have to credit my brother Dale with finding the best solar energy installer in the area! After talking with him about what we wanted to do and his experience with Energize, LLC (Jim and Barb) it was a very easy decision on who we wanted to do our project with. They are very professional in the design and installation of the best system for your needs. We couldn't be happier with our experience and would definitely work with them again, given the chance." - Gary

"We have produced more energy than we used for most of the ten years since our system was installed. We are a happy supporter of Energize." - Bill
"Energize installed the solar system on our church in Fond du Lac this spring. As chairperson of the project, I can't say enough for how helpful Jim was in educating us on solar and the professional installation. We were fortunate to receive a Solar for Good Grant to help with the cost. We will gladly share our experience with any non-profit considering solar." - Barbara, Pilgrim United Church of Christ
