The first session will be from 6 to 7 p.m. Thursday at the MCC Shah Center, 4100 W. Shamrock Lane in McHenry. 

Representatives from Midwest Renewable Energy Association will explain how homeowners, business owners or governmental agencies can save money, create jobs and expand the use of clean energy.

Participants will receive information on the basics about solar energy, how to get a site assessment for meeting specifications for solar power and tips on finding qualified solar installers and incentive information.
