Solar Panel Progress

Exciting Solar Panel Progress

We’re excited that the installation of more than 1,000 solar panels on the rooftop of Sacred Heart, our continuum of care residence, is nearly complete! It’s one of the largest institutional rooftop solar installations in the City of Milwaukee. The 375 kW system will offset more than 12% of the electricity consumed at Sacred Heart, and save our congregation tens of thousands of dollars in annual operation costs.

But we won’t just be saving money. The system will also save 15.9 million pounds of carbon dioxide, 6 million trees, 193 million gallons of water, and over 300,000 pounds of greenhouse gases.

We’re also making a difference in the local economy because participants in the Great Lakes Community Conservation Corps are assisting Arch Electric with the installation of the panels. This Southeast Wisconsin-based service organization helps disadvantaged teens and young adults develop job skills. We’re delighted that we could give them on-the-job experience with this exciting initiative.
