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.
