With the help of a grant from All Points North Foundation, Resource Central will reduce energy consumption by installing a 25kW solar array on its new materials yard roof. The system will offset electricity usage by approximately 2,500 kW per month on average, generating thousands of dollars in savings annually.
A new display at the materials yard will share the amount of energy generated by solar power and costs saved. Additionally, the project scope will include the installation of a “solar picnic table” for charging electronic devices such as phones and iPads, which will showcase an understandable, real-world example of the benefit of solar energy.
These innovative educational tools, paired with the new cost-saving solar panels, are part of Resource Central’s mission to put conservation into action and help their thriving community live more sustainably.
