Gift & Thrift Goes Solar
On Nov. 5, over thirty volunteers installed 160 solar panels on the Gift & Thrift warehouse roof in one morning! But we don't want to stop there. Please help us rearch our $40,000 goal to finance the remaining 120 panels. When complete, the 107 kilowatt system will be the largest in Harrisonburg. It will provide 46% of our electrical need, allowing us to donate $14,000 more each year to the international relief and development work of MCC . We're raising funds through the end of 2016, with another "solar barn-raising" to happen next spring atop the new annex and Artisan's Hope building. Learn more here.+ Read More
As of December 16, the solar array on the warehouse is live! Thanks to all who have volunteered time and donated toward the cost of this system. We have about $20,000 to go to fully fund the rest of the system, which will be installed in spring 2017. Also just out - see this new video of the solar barn raising.
We've reached the $15,000 mark toward our $40,000 fundraising goal! (This includes cash, check, and online donations.) Can you help us get to $40,000 before the end of the year?
Here's the time lapse photo of last week's solar barn raising. Over thirty volunteers installed the 180-panel, 62 kilowatt solar array on the Gift and Thrift warehouse roof. Please help us raise funds to install the remaining 45 kilowatts to make this the biggest solar system in Harrisonburg!
