Solar Fund


In 2017 the Sarasota City Commission adopted a goal of powering all of Sarasota with 100 percent clean, renewable energy by 2045.  In addition to the establishing a community-wide target for 100 percent renewable energy, the Sarasota City Commission also voted to adopt a goal of powering all municipal operations in the city with 100 percent renewable energy by 2030 and at least 50 percent by 2024.

WSLR is working to do its part and has already installed 10K of solar photovoltaic cells on the roof at 525 Kumquat Court.  This has reduced our electric bill by two-thirds and we are working to raise funds to complete the installation of another 5K of solar to get us closer to our 100% renewable goal.  To do this we need to optimize our current inverter and update our electric panel, which will add significantly to our costs.  Our estimated costs are $25,000 and we are seeking matching funds to move forward with this project.   

Sarasota is Ready for 100% Renewable Energy!
