Thanks to your generosity, we have fully funded our solar array.
Why not donate to one of these NC solar projects on non-profits?
Solar Schools - NC GreenPower and the State Employees Credit Union have teamed up to put a teaching solar array on five NC public schools. Each school receives a 3-5 kW solar PV system, a weathr staion, monitoring equipment, curriculum and classroom solar kits as well as training for teachers and ongoing support after the installation. The CUCC Solar Array Project made a seed grant to one of the year 1 schools; Solar Schools is now working on year 3. Donate
