Registration Now Open for October 6 Solar Summit

On October 6, the Village of Brookfield and Village of Riverside will sponsor a “Solar Summit” geared towards homeowners as well as other property owners and homebuilders considering “going solar”.   Registration is free and is at:

The agenda includes:

  • An overview of solar photo-voltaic (PV) panel installations on roofs – either as retrofits on existing homes or as part of new construction projects;
  • Tips from industry experts at BrightLeaf, a green energy home builder in Cook County along with Sunrun, a national leader in solar PV projects – plus municipal inspectors familiar with such projects;
  • Financing advice on leasing and purchasing options, the return on investment (ROI) and added home value; and
  • Additionally, the villages are working to line up home tours in Riverside and Brookfield to see, first hand, completed projects.

The first 30 registrants will get a little “swag” available for pick up at the event – starting at 10 AM on Saturday October 6.  We will also feature a raffle of an electric bicycle at the event’s closing at noon.  Questions?  Please contact Nick Greifer at
