From the Reuter YMCA press release:
Reuter Family YMCA Flips the Switch to Solar Power Thanks to Generous Donor’s Contribution!
‘This installation allows the Y to take a significant step towards sustainability and demonstrates its commitment to environmental stewardship. By harnessing the power of the sun, the solar panels will provide clean and renewable energy to the facility, reducing its carbon footprint and contributing to a greener future.
Sundance Power Systems, known for its expertise in solar energy solutions, worked closely with the YMCA to ensure a seamless installation process. The long-term benefits will have an impact on the community for many years to come.
The YMCA of Western North Carolina‘s Reuter Family YMCA was able to put the sun to work for the facility through a generous donation from Pete and Pat Wallenborn. “As long-time YMCA members, we appreciate what the YMCA has done especially being all-inclusive. We hope to inspire others to invest in clean energy”, shared Wallenborn.’
