LUM Solar Project – 2020 Savings So Far

Energy Saving – First Six Months of 2020

As you probably are aware, LUM launched a Solar Energy Initiative last year, and the savings have been impressive. In the first six months of 2020, the LUM Office building has generated more than $2,356 worth of electricity, the equivalent of 17.05 megawatts of solar energy.Thanks to LUM, 76,356 pounds of carbon dioxide were NOT emitted, the equivalent of 1,896 trees being planted.

In addition to the environmental benefits of going solar, the savings to LUM should be more than $5,000 per year. These savings include a reduction in energy needed as well as revenue from trading Solar Renewable Energy Credits. This money will be reinvested in LUM programs & services in support of local families and children. Hopefully there will be sunny winter days, and the amount of energy generated daily will be substantial. Stay tuned for more updates in the future.

LUM Solar Panels – Update

Energy Savings So Far – Eight Month Report

Autumn is approaching and the days are getting shorter, but there is still hope that solar energy will be good. The LUM Solar Energy Initiative launched about eight months ago, and to date, the LUM Office building has generated over $3,902 worth of electricity, the equivalent of 26.32 megawatts of solar energy. Thanks to LUM, 40,757 pounds of carbon dioxide were NOT emitted, the equivalent of 1,027 trees being planted.

In addition to the environmental benefits of going solar, the savings to LUM could be $5,000 per year. The LUM September 2019 energy bill was $303.07 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 several days this fall with bright sun and clear skies, and the amount of energy generated daily will be substantial.

Stay tuned for more updates in the future.

LUM Solar Panels – Summer Update

$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.
