Shine a Light on Solar Power

Stratford Ecological Center

PURPOSE

Stratford Ecological Center is reducing carbon emissions and teaching children about the benefits of renewable energy. This Better Together project helped close the gap on a larger capital campaign, ensuring a source of renewable energy for years to come!

THANK YOU FOR YOUR GENEROUS CONTRIBUTIONS!
GOAL $8,000
RAISED 37%

With the installation of 156 solar panels and a geothermal heating system, Stratford will reduce annual operating expenses by $7,000, and savings will be directed to programs for children. Using solar panels to power the farm will lower Stratford’s annual carbon emissions by 29 metric tons! With over 15,000 children and adults visiting Stratford each year, the solar arrays also create opportunities to educate and promote solar electric production with interactive displays like a solar playground, car chargers, cell phone chargers, and more!

 

Thank you for joining with others to shine a light on solar power at Stratford Ecological Center--We are Better Together!

“I am so proud to be part of an organization that WALKS THEIR TALK. Not only solar, but along with geo-thermal heating and cooling, sustainable farming practices, maintaining our own water wells, and practicing conservation on every inch of our 236 acres, Stratford truly is a model in our community of sustainability.”
