Sacred Heart School in L'Anse Launches Fundraising Campaign for Solar in the Schools

The Sacred Heart School (SHS) in L'Anse has started a new fundraising program for their campus. The sale of off-grid solar devices will raise money for their new "Nature Studies" curriculum. The program will not only raise funds for SHS, it will show students and their families how to implement solar in every day ways as they GREEN their school.

If significant funds of $120,000.00 or more are raised a proposed solar project of a 25kW Solar Array and a 3.3 kW Pole Mount PV will be possible eliminating the school's electric bill. Giving students a hands-on learning experience with the installation and daily monitoring of the systems.

For more information contact Principal Dr. Eric Grekowicz of Sacred Heart School at 906.524.5157 or email info@upgreenrecycling.com.
