We recently completed three solar installations this past October for Sinsinawa Dominican Sisters (Sinsinawa, WI). The three arrays will directly supply power to a waste-water treatment plant, a well house, and St. Dominic Villa, a skilled nursing facility. Each solar array will offset the congregation’s electric use by 30%, saving the organization over $35,000 in annual utility costs.
“This is a shining example of a public-private partnership that provides genuine economic and environmental benefits,” said Jim Pullen, General Manager of Eagle Point Solar. “We are proud to have worked with RENEW and the Sinsinawa Dominican Sisters to make this possible.”
“This project represents an incredible investment in solar power,” said Sam Dunaiski, Program Manager for RENEW Wisconsin. “This is by far our largest Solar for Good project to date. It’s three-times the size of the next largest project and generates enough electricity to power over 50 homes.”
“The installation of the solar energy systems is part of our Dominican commitment to respond to Pope Francis’ urgent summons of Laudato Si to care for Earth, our home,” said Sister Angelo Collins, OP, who serves on the Leadership Council of the Dominican Sisters of Sinsinawa.
