MadiSUN is the City of Madison’s initiative to expand solar energy for homes and businesses. For 2018, three programs are available to help grow solar in Madison.
The MadiSUN solar group purchase program brings together households across the city and uses their collective buying power to get a great deal on rooftop solar at home. Our team of community members reviews competing offers from solar companies across the region and selects a trusted partner to install your system, saving you time and money.
MadiSUN is proud to partner with Summit Credit Union to provide a special solar loan for Madison residents. This program helps you to finance 100% of the cost of your rooftop solar system at an affordable, fixed rate. So you start saving money on day one. Borrow as little as $1,000 or up to $20,000, with no fees, no collateral and flexible repayment terms.
New for 2018! The City of Madison and RENEW Wisconsin want to help your Madison-area business “go solar!” Focus on Energy state rebates are available up to $4000 and the City of Madison is contributing a limited pool of rebates to further incentivize you to add solar power to your business.
Over the past two years, 80 Madison-area homes have installed solar through the program. We are excited to grow that program while adding a focus on businesses this year!
Full Spectrum was a pleasure to work with. I was confident in their skills and expertise to size the system and install it. The project manager kept me informed throughout the process. Overall, a very good experience with both the program and the installer.
We love the financial incentives, in terms the Federal Tax Credit for 30% of the cost of our system and Wisconsin’s Focus on Energy program rebates. Saving over 80% on our electric bill does not hurt either. Best of all, we feel like we are finally part of the solution, making our planet habitable for our grandchildren and beyond.
Solar panels were in our wish list, but we thought it would take us about 5 years to be able to afford them. When we learned about MadiSUN‘s group buy, it turned out it was very accessible and simpler than we thought! We are very glad we did it!
We’d thought about doing something with solar generation for a long time but it always seemed expensive and complicated. The group-buy savings and 30% tax credit and the rebate from Focus on Energy helped us decide. Both the MadiSUN folks and the crew from Full Spectrum Solar were professional and really helpful.

MadiSUN has been a pleasure to work with — from the initial emails, to an informational presentation with answers to financial concerns, they have provided timely answers and great resources. Everyone has made this a very positive experience and we highly recommend the MadiSUN Solar Group Buy program!
