Stop 6 - Solar Power

Solar panels have been installed above the Nature Center Deck and River Room classroom. 

They collect solar energy from the sun and help to offset the electrical needs of the nature center by up to 15% each day. 

Even when it's not very sunny outside, the panels still absorb some of the sun's rays and help to power the building.

Solar panels for use on homes have become easier to obtain, install and afford. There's a Federal Solar Tax Credit and many states also offer incentives.
