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

“It’s sort of a basic introduction. 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,” Buchanan explained. “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.
