LUM Awarded EnviroWatts Grant for Solar Panels


Tipmont REMC Invests in LUM Solar Energy Project

Tipmont REMC awarded LUM a $10,000 EnviroWatts grant.

In October, the roof on the LUM Office building was replaced with a new steel roof, completing the first phase of the LUM Solar Energy Project. With the EnviroWatts Grant money a solar energy system (35.710 kW) will be installed. LUM has applied for other grants for this project.

In addition to the environmental benefits of going solar, the saving will potentially be $6,618 per year. This total includes the savings from the reduction in energy needed as well as revenue from trading Solar Renewable Energy Credits. This money will be re-invested in LUM programs & services in support of local families.

Thank you to Tipmont REMC and the members of the EnviroWatts Trust Board. {Pictured above with Joe Micon, LUM executive director is Rob Ford, Communication Director for Tipmont REMC.}



The entire project should be completed by January 1, 2019. If you would be interested in making a capital gift to the LUM Solar Energy Project, please email Joe Micon (jmicon@lumserve.org).
