One Program, Big Impact
1,727 people attended Solar Power Hours
205 properties added solar
1474 kilowatts of solar have been installed
Every year, that’s like avoiding:
3,334,583 miles driven by the average passenger vehicle
1,480,724 lbs. of coal burned
OR like 57,180 trash bags recycled rather than landfilled
