$1,840 Worth of Energy Generated So Far
Summer is here, and solar energy will be at its peak in the next three months. The LUM Solar Energy Initiative launched about five months ago, and to date, the LUM Office building has generated over $1,840 worth of electricity. Thanks to LUM, 19,200 pounds of carbon dioxide were NOT emitted, the equivalent of 484 trees being planted.
In addition to the environmental benefits of going solar, the savings to LUM could be $5,000 per year. The LUM April 2019 energy bill was $350 less than last year’s.This savings include a 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. Hopefully there will be more long summer days with bright sun and clear skies, and the amount of energy generated daily will keep increasing. Stay tuned for more updates in the future.
