Adventure Science Center Brings Science to Life with Solar Exhibit Promoting Clean Energy Education for All Ages
Everybody Solar knows firsthand that nonprofit organizations face budget constraints and tight resources, making it challenging to invest in renewable energy. Yet it remains undaunted as the nonprofit organization has been helping other nonprofits transition to solar energy by providing solar panel systems, technical support, and educational resources since 2011. Teaming up with Adventure Science Center, Everybody Solar hopes to inspire individuals and organizations to adopt clean energy practices including harnessing the power of the sun.
With support of an All Points North Foundation grant, the science center will install a 72.32 kW solar array which is expected to generate 109,009 kWh of electricity annually. Not only will the solar initiative help reduce electricity expenses by about $10,956 per year but will also help prevent 159,377 CO2 emissions from entering the atmosphere, reducing the science center’s carbon footprint.
