Bring Solar to the Shelterless

cots woolsey-30 smallBring solar to Committee on the Shelterless (COTS) and break the cycle of homelessness for children, and families with the help of solar power!

COTS provides life-saving shelter and transformative programs to families, children and adults in Sonoma County, California. The organization provides 322 beds of emergency shelter, both transitional and permanent housing, and serves 120 hot meals per day. All of these services take a lot of energy to keep running. 

Together we can help COTS reduce their carbon footprint by 14,000 pounds of CO2 per year, and re-direct more of their limited funds towards helping homeless families by cutting over $11,000 per year from their electric bills.

Project Details: We will help COTS install a 19.5 kW solar energy system on the Mary Isaak Center (their main facility) and an 8 kW solar energy system for one of their transitional homes in Petaluma, California.

Our Impact:
By giving over 27,500 watts of new solar energy to Committee on the Shelterless, we will help them save $11,200 per year, allowing them to serve additional meals, provide additional job readiness and retention courses and beds for emergency shelter to those in need.

Help break the cycle of homelessness for children, families, and adults. Provide an example of how communities can come together to use solar energy to save valuable resources, and help address climate change!

Do all this and more for your community by helping install solar for COTS!
