Sacred Heart School in L'Anse Launches Fundraising Campaign for Solar in the Schools

The Sacred Heart School (SHS) in L'Anse has started a new fundraising program for their campus. The sale of off-grid solar devices will raise money for their new "Nature Studies" curriculum. The program will not only raise funds for SHS, it will show students and their families how to implement solar in every day ways as they GREEN their school.

If significant funds of $120,000.00 or more are raised a proposed solar project of a 25kW Solar Array and a 3.3 kW Pole Mount PV will be possible eliminating the school's electric bill. Giving students a hands-on learning experience with the installation and daily monitoring of the systems.

For more information contact Principal Dr. Eric Grekowicz of Sacred Heart School at 906.524.5157 or email info@upgreenrecycling.com.

Michigan utility customers may be eligible for a free furnace or boiler tune-up through a statewide energy efficiency program. Tune-ups ensure heating systems are running cleanly and efficiently, saving residents money and eliminating health and safety risks.

Blue Terra Energy is conducting the free tune-ups, normally priced at $100, for natural gas utility customers in the western Upper Peninsula. Residents must be Semco Energy Gas Company customers to qualify. Customers can call (906) 487-5342 to schedule.

The free furnace and boiler tune-ups are funded by revenue collected from a small surcharge Michigan utility customers currently pay on their monthly bills. In addition to a free tune-up, customers may also be eligible to receive a new programmable thermostat and/or new carbon monoxide detector, free of charge.
