Solar for the Lakota Nation Youth

LakotaYouthTraditionalWear200Bring Solar to the Allen Youth Center (AYC) and help the Lakota Nation gain idenpendence and continue to provide their youth with culturally enriching activities.

The Allen Youth Center supports nearly 4,000 Lakota children and youth at the Pine Ridge Indian Reservation in South Dakota. Food is provided to the kids on a daily basis and daily activities include tutoring, music and art classes, astronomy, cultural events, etc. The One Spirit Allen Youth Center is also used for community events.

Providing the Allen Youth Center with a 16.5 kW solar energy system will save them limited funding. The money saved by AYC will allow them to be more sustainable, feed more children, and provide their youth with more enriching activities. This solar array will also help make the reservation a greener and more sustainable community.

Solar for the Science Factory

KidsBring solar to the Science Factory in Eugene, OR, and help them sustain their educational science programs and exhibits. This project includes the development of an interactive solar exhibit that demonstrates how solar panels work while empowering community members to invest in solar and other clean energy sources.

The 32.55 kW photovoltaic (PV) solar energy system will save the Science Factory approximately $4,900 per year. Overall, the system will offset 52,578 lbs. of CO2 per year – the equivalent to planting 663 trees.

Solar Fund

SolarFund200Your donation can improve the sustainability of a nonprofit and help protect the environment today.

The Solar Fund
is comprised of donations for all of Everybody Solar’s projects. Donate to the Solar Fund and spread your contribution equally among all current (and up-coming) Everybody Solar projects for nonprofits.

Every $200 donated means 1 more solar panel on the roof of a nonprofit. Using EPA equivalencies, in just one year, that panel will prevent more than 4,070 lbs. of CO2 from entering the atmosphere. That’s the equivalent of not driving an average passenger car 4,426 miles, not filing up your gas tank 208 times, or of reaping the benefits 48 trees growing for 10 years.

Even a small gift has a great impact in fighting climate change and creating more resilient communities!

Solar for the Sciencenter

sc-animal-room2 webThank you for helping us bring solar to the Sciencenter in Ithaca, NY! Thanks to donations from supporters across the United States we installed a 15 kW photovoltaic (PV) solar energy system for the Sciencenter in October 2016. We are currently working to help them expand their educational programs in the community and open a new exhibition gallery that will empower guests to engage in sustainable practices in their daily lives.

The 15 kW solar energy system will save the Sciencenter over $1,700 annually and offset 25,000 pounds of CO2 per year, sequestering as much CO2 as planting 300 trees per year.

Check out the photos from the install. Then help us spread solar to more deserving nonprofits and communities!
