Solar Q&A

Get up to speed quickly on the basic concepts and the value proposition of solar and renewable energy, plus what you need to know about contracts with the utility company.



Protect your solar rights and the future of solar in Indiana.


SIREN and the City of Bloomington partnered on Solarize campaigns for six years, from 2017 until the end of net metering in 2022. Solarize was a group-buy arrangement that reduced costs for all participants through negotiated volume purchases. As of 2023, we judge that the market is sufficiently mature and the solar companies sufficiently responsive that our organizing services are no longer required and we are returning to our roots as educators. We continue to advise on how to go solar, including some groups of homeowners who have negotiated volume discounts for themselves. The City continues to support our efforts.

Residents of south central Indiana are already in a leadership role in the state with nearly 1,000 local solar owners, many of whom are on our online discussion forum. To join the discussion group, please email  You can learn more about solar energy for your home, school or business by attending a one hour Information Session (click here to register) or by contacting SIREN with your questions.

The SIREN community consists of hundreds of Indiana solar owners, installers, presenters, and green allies who communicate with each other by email over the public SIREN forum/mailing list, which you are welcome to join.  We also hold informal gatherings where new and old members of the community meet to exchange information. Contact us if you are interested in attending one.
