According to the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change, “Scientists have high confidence that global temperatures will continue to rise for decades to come, largely due to greenhouse gases produced by human activities”.

After encountering several challenges with the roof structure and therefore design of the system, Everybody Solar, with the support of numerous agencies — O’Brien Construction, Energy Design, Woodchuck Engineering, Jerry’s Home Improvement, EWEB, JinkoSolar and All Points North Foundation — is bringing a 30.2-kW solar array (in two phases, with the first phase completed this month) to the Eugene Science Center (ESC).

While the re-designs led to delays in installation, one of the benefits is that the solar array will now be side mounted to the South-facing side of the ESC’s building, allowing for the public to have more immediate contact with the system. In this first phase of the installation, the Eugene Science Center is receiving 18.9 kW of photovoltaics...

October 1, 2018 (Investorideas.com Newswire) A beacon of light shining for the Allen Youth Center located on the Pine Ridge Indian Reservation in South Dakota.

On November 10, 2014 One Spirit opened the Allen Youth Center in Pine Ridge Reservation. It was the first, and only, youth center built. Although the temperature was 20 degrees and it was snowing, the community was celebrating. The building and programs have been monumental for Lakota youth, a recognition that they are the future of the Lakota nation and that they will have the help they need to carry forward the traditions and responsibilities of their people. The center has grown strong, providing mentorship, study areas, tutoring, recreation, food and counseling in a welcoming place that lures youth away from drugs, alcohol and gangs.

NOW on October 5, 2018 - the Allen Youth Center goes SOLAR!
