Solar PVs at Idea Garden (Completed)


The Idea Garden previously lacked access to electricity, making garden maintenance a challenge. Since the Idea Garden’s mission statement is “helping others learn to grow,” the volunteer-led team only wanted sustainable infrastructure added to its garden. To add utilities to the site in an environmentally-friendly manner, the Idea Garden staff and volunteers requested funding from the Student Sustainability Committee. They received $56,400 in December 2017 to install solar panels, giving electricity to the area.



This is a Student Sustainability Committee supported project.
