Brookfield Hosts Successful Solar Summit with Riverside

The Village of Brookfield joined forces with Riverside to conduct a special Solar Summit on Saturday, October 6.   The well-attended event drew a mix of homeowners, contractors and homebuilders interested in going solar.  The attendees learned first-hand on two home tours about the costs, benefits and practical tips for pursuing residential solar projects.

The Village extends a thank you to our industry experts, sponsors Sunrun and BrightLeaf Homes.   The two firms extended financial and technical support for the event, along with Blue Raven which discussed a recent home project in the area.  See below for photos from the event.

Attached are Powerpoint slides from the event:  Brookfield Sunrun Presentation. For follow-up questions, please contact Nick Greifer at

PS In just the last month Brookfield has received 4 new building permit applications for solar projects, providing more investment into our community.   Not only will these projects add $50,000 to home values, it will also take pressure off the Comed grid during peak energy periods.
