Now, with a second grant from All Points North Foundation grant, Safe Haven Farms is able to expand the existing solar array significantly. With the help of Third Sun Solar/Kokosing, the existing 69 kW DC solar PV ground mount system will be expanded to include an additional 25.4 kW DC for a total of 94.4 kW DC. The solar system has already provided significant savings on the Farm’s electricity bills for the past year.
With the new expansion, even more funds will be available for various farm programs that directly impact adults with developmental disabilities.. Additionally, the entire solar system which includes a native species garden will enable Safe Haven Farms to incorporate solar energy education into its year-round tours for school groups, families, visitors and volunteers.
Safe Haven Farms looks forward to achieving its clean energy dream, a goal since inception to showcase the benefits of clean, green energy and a reduced carbon footprint for its surrounding community.
