Putting SE Como flat roofs to work Update

SECIA was awarded $3000 from Clean Energy Resource Teams (CERT) to survey all the flat roofs in Como and play matchmaker building owners and green technologies (solar panels, green roofs, rooftop beehives, etc.).  We have completed the gross survey and begun connecting with property owners.  Many have been glad to hear from us and are interested in learning more about how adding sustainability features can benefit their businesses and the community.

We are continuing talks between Community Solar and Murphy Warehouse Co. that started at our July 28th lunch meeting. Recently, SECIA's very own Ricardo McCurley was interviewed for Roofing Magazine, a national publication, on the subject of Como's Green Rooftop Project.

If you own a property with a flat roof and are interested in learning about how that space can be put to use, call the office at 612 676-1731 or email Emma at rooftops@comogreenvillage.info.
