Now, with an All Points North Foundation grant, Safe Haven Farms is pursuing another dream: to convert 40-45 percent of its electricity use to solar energy.
Safe Haven Farms, with the help of Third Sun Solar, will install a 69 kW DC solar PV system on elevated ground mounts to allow for a pollinator garden with native plants to grow beneath it. The solar system installation will help reduce electricity bills and allow funds to be redirected to various farm programs that directly impact the lives of those served. Additionally, the mounted panels and 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.
