RENEWABLE ENERGY

 

Solar Power!

  • In May 2013, after we received a matching grant from the Indiana Office of Energy Development (OED), we installed our first two solar panel arrays. 
    • The OED grant required that we reduce our energy use by 25% from a baseline year. Learn more on our ENERGY STAR page. 
  • In 2017 we raised funds from our members to add a third array. 
  • In 2019 the combined arrays produced or offset over 90% of our building’s electricity, saving over $29,000.00 on electric bills. 

 

This graph shows our energy production versus what we purchase from the grid over time.
