Thank you for your willingness to open your doors for The Wisconsin Solar Tour. Without you the Solar Tour could not happen!
 
The MREA will work to promote The Wisconsin Solar Tour throughout the state, but you can help as well. Here in the press room, you’ll find a sample Letter to the Editor, Press Release, Solar Tour Poster, and link to radio stations in your area if you would like to record a Public Service Announcement.

To cut your printing costs, we recommend printing a copy or two, and photocopying the rest to put up around your town. Our favorite places to poster? Libraries, downtown businesses, and environmental organizations’ offices. If you don’t have access to a printer, we have some hard copy posters that we can send your way, please email Allison at allisonl@midwestrenew.org to request posters.

Public Service Announcement:
This list of scripts can often be submitted to a radio station, or you can go a step above and beyond by recording a PSA at a radio station, or do an interview with a radio station in your area. PSAs are fun to record, and are a great way to share The Solar Tour with your whole region. To find radio stations in your neck of the woods you can visit Wikipedia for a list of stations.
