... these Superheroes of the environment would be first!
This month, a 100 kilowatt solar power system is being installed at Old Mill Center, made possible by Solarize Corvallis  – a collaboration of two amazing programs that helps organizations transition to renewable energy and add to the local power grid.
Guided by Dan Orzech, General Manager at Oregon Clean Power Cooperative and Annette Mills of the Corvallis Sustainability Coalition , Solarize Corvallis designed our building's solar array, raised funds on our behalf from interested community members, wrote grants for the project, and secured all the necessary permits, incentives and funding.
Solar power is right for our organization, our community, and the environment.

We were excited to be chosen as a candidate for this project, and proud to be involved during its planning. The new system will reduce our carbon footprint while enhancing the environmental usefulness of the community asset that our building represents. Several of our supporters are as excited as we are about how it will extend our community benefit.

Energy savings from the start

Once our system is up and running, we will immediately begin reaping its financial benefits – potentially saving as much as $10,000 a year in electricity! The project fits perfectly with two of our priorities: long term sustainability and close management of operating expenses.

... and the completed roof!
Thanks to our community for making this possible...

Old Mill Center has considered solar power for years, but it took the vision, expertise, and contributions of incredible community partners to make it happen. Our deepest thanks to everyone involved in supporting our sustainable future!
