LOCATION: Fitchburg, Wisconsin | CAPACITY: 21.6 kW | COMPLETION DATE: July 2018
Memorial United Church of Christ is a progressive, inclusive, multi-generational UCC church in Fitchburg, Wisconsin. LSC and Midwest Solar Power partnered to install a 20 kilowatt solar array that will meet approximately 90% of the church’s total electricity needs over the course of the year.
The high level of concern for the environment was demonstrated by the unanimous approval of the Memorial United Church of Christ congregation to add solar to our building in Fitchburg. Legacy Coop and Solar Connections helped us study our energy needs, size the system and explore alternative financing. The system has exceeded our expectations, meeting more than 90% of our electric energy needs. Financial support from Renew Wisconsin’s Solar for Good program and Focus On Energy was also critical to making our solar project a success.
