The $139,000 project was made possible with funding support from Pacific Power’s Blue Sky program customers. Design, construction and installation of the project was done by Newcastle Solar, based in Myrtle Creek, and went online with Pacific Power on June 21, 2018.
Installing a 43.2 kilo-watt solar electric system is a win-win for the animals and for the environment. As a nonprofit, Saving Grace is always looking for ways to improve care for our pets and save money. The system is estimated to produce 45% of the shelter’s electricity so the center can focus on uniting pets with loving families and maintaining the high standard of care for animals. It also allows us to conserve energy and reduce Saving Grace’s carbon footprint as a responsible member of the greater community and protect the wider environment.
