Solar Moonshot Program Grantee

"Healing ourselves and healing the earth is Commonweal’s mission—and has been so for four decades. We engage in and encourage program work that involves the environmental conditions of the earth - minimizing hazardous impacts to both the ecosystem and human health. Commonweal feels it important to operate its facilities in environmentally sustainable and resilient manner. The solar array will increase Commonweal‘s resilience in emergency situations, reduce costs overtime for powering our facilities and serve as an educational model for the community. Having a solar array brings our operations into alignment with our values and has been a dream of Commonweal’s for years. We are deeply grateful for the support Solar Moonshot provided to help make this dream a reality."
-Arlene Allsman, Managing Director & Chief Operating Officer, Commonweal
