Wildlife Associates provides nationally acclaimed educational programs throughout the Greater San Francisco Bay Area. At their 120-acre wildlife sanctuary in Half Moon Bay, they care for more than 50 non-releasable animals that could not survive in the wild.
In 2016, SunWork and our volunteers installed 90 solar panels, creating a 27 kW system to power Wildlife Associates operations. SunWork partnered with Everybody Solar who identified the opportunity, raised funds for the project and worked with several companies for donations. Jinko Solar provided the solar panels, Enphase donated the inverters, and Mounting Systems provided the mounting hardward.
Wildlife Associates now saves over $8,000 a year with the system allowing them to put more resources toward helping wildlife and educating kids. Check out the video of Bruce Holaday, Wildlife Associates, Executive Director.
