You’re Invited – “Flip the Switch” Ceremony
LUM Goes Solar – Monday, January 14 at 4 p.m.
The LUM Solar Energy Project is completed and the switch will be flipped to solar energy Monday, January 14, at a special ceremony.
Please join us at the “Flip the Switch” Ceremony and witness this historic milestone for LUM. Here are the details:
- Date: Monday, January 14 | Time: 4 p.m.
- Location: LUM Office, 420 N 4th Street, Lafayette
Not only will you see the new steel roof, solar panels, utility boxes and online energy monitor but you will also meet our donors, grant providers, and contractors.
Light refreshments will be served. No RSVP is necessary.
In late December, the solar panels were installed on the new steel roof on the LUM Office building — completing the final stage of the LUM Solar Energy Project. The installation was done by the team at Jefferson Electric of Indianapolis (pictured below).
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.
