Power For Primates!
Primates Inc. was founded in 2004 on the belief that monkeys should be properly cared for after serving time in medical laboratories and Hollywood films. They are currently caring for six retired monkeys at their enriching and spacious sanctuary in Westfield, Wisconsin and are continuing to grow in nationwide support.
RE-volv Solar Ambassador students at the University of Wisconsin-Madison are teaming up with Primates Inc. to raise money for a new 14.3kW solar system for their facility.
Primates Inc. will be installing solar panels on their roof this spring - a choice that will exemplify the organization’s commitment to sustainability. This effort is made possible through RE-volv, a nonprofit based in San-Francisco that finances the upfront costs of solar arrays for nonprofits across the United States. By partnering with RE-volv, Primates is guaranteed to save money on their monthly utility bills and they are already expected to save 15% in their first month. These savings are expected to increase exponentially over the years and will help Primates expand their care for these amazing creatures.
We want to thank RENEW Wisconsin for making significant contributions to the campaign to ensure its success!
CROWDFUNDING GOAL: $41,608.30
SYSTEM SIZE: 14.3kW
LIFETIME REDUCTION OF CO2 IN ATMOSPHERE: 703,246 lbs
EXPECTED INSTALLATION: FALL 2019
Your donation will make a positive and long-lasting impact in the Wisconsin community!
Why Is RE-volv Helping Bring Solar to Primates Inc?
RE-volv is a national nonprofit that helps community-serving nonprofits go solar. RE-volv’s mission is to empower people to bring clean energy to their communities. This crowdfunding campaign will cover the upfront costs of the solar installation at Primates Inc. Once the solar energy system is up and running, Primates Inc. will pay RE-volv back over time through a solar lease at a rate much less than what they were paying the utility company. Those payments grow a revolving fund for solar called the Solar Seed Fund.
