Aquaponics facility goes solar

The Blue Acre Appalachian Aquaponics Facility recently completed the installation of 164 solar panels onto its greenhouse through a project with Solar Holler. Solar Holler works to make clean energy affordable, rebuild the Appalachian economy and spread the benefits of clean energy to those who need it most.

“Right from the start, we’ve worked with churches, libraries, homeless shelters, and other community-based organizations to lower or eliminate their electric bill so they can focus their resources and investment on their mission and not on utility costs,” said Solar Holler founder and CEO Dan Conant.

With the installation at Blue Acre, it’s estimated that about 65% of the facility’s energy needs will be offset by the solar panels. The 164 panels installed will produce an estimated 48,790kWh of energy per year.

“I know they’ve been working toward the project for a long time, and finally, it comes to fruition,” said Karina Centeno, community marketing manager for Solar Holler."
