VIROQUA, Wisc. (WKBT) – Renewable energy has been growing in popularity for some time now, and Pleasant Ridge Waldorf School has the opportunity to run on solar power.
A Ribbon-Cutting took place on Friday, May 3, at Pleasant Ridge Waldorf School in Viroqua.
The school was awarded two grants – a $5,700 grant from the Solar for Good program and a $3,400 grant from Focus on Energy to help with the installation of the array.
School board members say renewable energy is a fundamental belief of the school and that’s it’s the right path for the students.
Partners of the project (Ethos Green Power, Focus on Energy, and Renew Wisconsin) spoke briefly about their contributions to the project along with the ribbon cutting:
Pleasant Ridge Waldarf School Board President says, “This project aligns with our ‘DNA’ at the school. We wanted to install solar because we hold a fundamental belief that you support something in which you believe. We believe that renewable energy is the right path for the community, our children’s children, and our planet.”
Solar for Good facilitate and assist the installation of solar power at nonprofit organizations across the entire state of Wisconsin.
