Solar Power World - September 21, 2016 - Grants from APNF, Cornell University and Module Supplier Sponsorship Bring Project Fundraising Across the Finish Line
Ithaca, NY – Everybody Solar, an award-winning solar energy nonprofit, announced that it will donate a 15 kilowatt (kW) solar array to the Sciencenter, a hands-on science museum in upstate New York. This was made possible by All Points North Foundation (APNF), Cornell University, JinkoSolar and over 50 individual donors, who rose up to bring solar energy and sustainability education to upstate New York.
In October of 2015, Everybody Solar kicked off a crowdsourced fundraising campaign to bring a solar array to the Sciencenter, which attracts over 100,000 visitors each year. The solar energy system will save over $1,700 per year on utility costs and will be a key feature of the Sciencenter’s new Sustainability Gallery, an interactive exhibit teaching the science of sustainability. Everybody Solar coordinated these financial and in-kind donations and worked alongside the Sciencenter’s leadership team to ensure the success of the project.
