This Spring, we hired a small group of Amish men to come expand and reinforce the roof on the machine shop. After our roofing project was complete, Northern Lights Energy installed 67 solar panels on the roof of the welding and machine shops. If we’ve done the math right, over the course of the year, the excess power we create in the summer and the demand we have this winter will even out, making us 100% solar powered! In just one month, we’ve already created 3.71 MWh of energy, saving 2,533.83 kg of carbon emissions. That’s the equivalent of planting 143 trees – that’s eco-friendly and totally AWESOME!!!
