Non-profit better serves its mission with significant cost savings from solar energy
Since 1993, Wildmind Science Center, a wildlife conservation, animal welfare, and environmental non-profit organization has endeavored to make its operations as environmentally friendly as possible.
Located on the Northern California coast, the Wildmind Science Center provides over 500 hands-on science education programs to children throughout the San Francisco Bay Area. The sanctuary offers unique habitats for over 50 non-releasable wild animals, and provides students with a meaningful lesson about the importance of environmental protection. With the installation of a 27kW solar project, the Center is able to cut their energy cost by 90% each year.
+ By utilizing solar energy, the Wildmind Science Center ensures a greener environment and avoids emissions of pollutants to the air, soil, and water.
+ With the incorporation of clean energy, the non-profit has saved $9,000 on annual electric costs, thus allowing donor funds to be used for additional wildlife conservation.
+ From the electricity savings, Wildmind Science Center can serve an additional 5,000 students in its educational programs.
