The 19 solar panels on the roof of our iconic administration building, Spes Bona, were powered up in May of 2019 - and it has been a brilliant first year of operation! More than 8.10 MWh in clean, green energy - about three-quarters of which powered our daily operations. Almost one-quarter was excess energy, and flowed out through the smart meter into the hydro grid - helping to power our neighbours and also reducing our energy bills.
We're almost half way to our fundraising target for phase two of Solar for Spes - another 32 solar panels that will boost our production by 71%! More energy for us, and more for our neighbours, from the abundant rays of the sun. We're also adding an eco-friendly electric vehicle charging station. The panels have been purchased and delivered - we need another $12,724 to cover installation and related costs.
Make sure to choose "Solar for Spes" in "please use my gift toward" to designate your gift.
