Going Solar: A Cook County Guide

Going Solar – A Cook County Guide

The new solar resource guide, Going Solar – A Cook County Guide, is now available on line. It is designed to help landowners in Cook County determine what type and size of solar system may work for them.

The guide covers solar basics as well as details of the two major system types, grid connected and stand alone systems. Also included are ways to figure system costs, how much electricity to generate, available funding opportunities, and more.

Read this guide to learn how and if going solar makes sense for your situation.


This project is funded with a grant from the Lloyd K Johnson Foundation.

Petition to Move "Devilfish Overlook" Radio Tower 1/2 Mile Up Hill

The online petition is ready to roll. For anyone I have copied that is not aware, MnDOT is proposing an 18-story radio tower behind our cabin, but, more importantly, visible from five of the area lakes. A group of us are asking MnDOT to move the tower 1/2 mile up the hill. Would very much appreciate your support and electronic signature and comments.

Cook County Residents and Property Owners: The county commissioner is most interested in hearing from you.
People who have physically visited one of the lakes: You are next in line.
People who support but are not in a category above: The commissioner is not disinterested in hearing from you, but he is most interested in the first category (and then the second).

If you are local in Cook County, look for our Petition ad in the paper.
