Utah’s largest women’s shelter will now save on its monthly power bill thanks to the donation of a solar system from Auric Solar. The YWCA’s new 53.6 kilowatt system will allow the organization to save thousands over the next 25 years.
The YWCA is Utah’s oldest, largest, and most comprehensive provider of shelter, transitional housing, education, and supportive services for women and children who have experienced family violence. The new rooftop solar panel system will be on the organization’s Kathleen Robison Huntsman Residence, offsetting a third of the building’s electricity needs.
“Solar power really is the gift that keeps on giving,” YWCA Chief Development Officer Amberlie Phillips said. “By donating this solar power system, Auric Solar is helping the YWCA save money every month on our power bill, which will be used to provide life-saving services to women and children living at the YWCA."
“YWCA Utah does so much good for the community,” said Auric Solar Co-Owner Jess Phillips. “We want to do whatever we can to help them continue their great work. We’re honored to partner with them as the recipient of our Buy Solar. Give Solar program."
The donation is part of Auric's Echo program, its corporate responsibility initiative committed to creating powerful solutions for the community and the planet.
