“This solar energy project will enable us to lessen our energy consumption and to invest in our care of the Earth. It is very much in keeping with the way that our province is living out our Congregational Direction by joining with others to raise a common voice for the good of all creation.”
– Sister Carol Rigali, School Sisters of St. Francis (Arch Electric, 7/19/17)
The School Sisters of St. Francis are an international community of Catholic sisters who unite with others to build a just and peaceful world. Founded in 1874, the organization has more than 1,000 sisters, associates, staff, donors and volunteers actively working to address the needs of those who are poor and marginalized by society. Their sites are located in the United States, Europe, Latin America and India. St. Joseph’s Convent in Milwaukee is one of nine sponsored or co-sponsored sites in the U.S. Legacy Solar Co-op partnered with Member Arch Electric (Milwaukee, WI) and General Capital to help St. Joseph’s Convent get 375 kilowatts of solar (1,086 panels) on east- and south-facing roofs at their Layton Boulevard campus in Milwaukee. This is reportedly the largest roof-mounted solar array so far in the City of Milwaukee!
Thank you to Sister Carol and all the local, regional, and international representatives who helped make this happen!
