“The opportunity for the Food Bank to become more energy independent with this solar project translates directly into increased food and services for those who need it most.”

Black Rock Solar installed a 150 kW array at the Food Bank in January, 2010, saving the organization approximately $33,000 annually, enough money to buy 132,000 additional meals for needy families each and every year.
