Support La Crosse Non-Profits
Habitat for Humanity La Crosse Area invites you to help us add a 53.28 kW solar array on the roof of our ReStore building in La Crosse. We strongly believe in reducing energy waste and structuring our programs in ways to maximize energy savings whenever possible.
The installation of solar panels on our ReStore/office building will offer a variety of benefits offsetting 100% of our current electricity usage:
- Utility savings from the installation of solar will allow Habitat to focus those funds on providing more assistance to low-income families in our community.
- The location of the ReStore in La Crosse is highly visible to the public. This project will highlight solar energy as a viable option for businesses and raise awareness of its benefits in our community.
- Installing solar panels on our ReStore aligns with Habitat’s overall commitment to reduce energy waste, furthering our stance on sustainability in the community.
