Re-Energize Maplewood! was a yearlong initiative intended to increase energy efficiency and solar in the community. Through combining innovative marketing strategies with expert knowledge and resources, Maplewood laid the groundwork for reshaping their energy future and meeting their ambitious greenhouse gas reduction goals. It builds on the city's energy action plan in a number of critical ways:
- Providing solar information to homes and businesses who previously participated
- Expanding Home Energy Squad services for low-income manufactured home communities
- Identifying the top 40 solar sites in the city and expanding the program for businesses
- Engaging and educating the community about energy efficiency
