Solar Gathering

Solar system owners:

Are you interested in sharing your experience with solar installations with others?

Are you interested in learning how others with solar systems do things?

Have you ever thought am I the only one having this problem or issue?


Future solar system owners:

Are you interested in talking with solar system owners about their installations, their decisions, what they’d never do again, what they would do again?


CCLEP is spearheading a Solar Get Together for solar owners (current and future) to swap information, talk solar and decide what the group should do!

If you are interested in this, let us know and I’ll keep your email on the list. Those without email can be put on a phone-calling tree.

We are currently looking at having the first gathering the third week in September.

Let’s start off with a pot luck!

THANK YOU From Memorial Blood Centers

On behalf of the Memorial Blood Centers, they would like to thank everyone who came out to donate blood. Yesterday was their very first 12 hour blood drive anywhere and they had a goal to collect 90 units of blood. They were able to collect 101 units of blood because of all the generious donors that came out. 

Congratulations Cook County for making this a successful blood drive and helping to save lives.
