We Believe in the Power of the Sun! Do You?

We received a $20,000 grant to put solar panels on the roof of our middle school but we need to raise $15,000 to make it happen. We would love for you to be a part of it. Click here to contribute now, or read on to learn more!

Central Park School For Children has the opportunity to become the only school we know of in the world to have grid tied and an off the grid system. We received a $20,000 grant from NC Green Power and the State Employee’s Credit Union to put solar panels on the roof of our middle school!

The great thing about this project is it won’t just provide electricity for our school, but will feed clean energy into the grid all around downtown Durham. We need to raise $13,500 in matching funds to make it happen. Through the CPSC Solar Collaborative, businesses in Downtown Durham will have the opportunity to participate in sponsoring this project. You can be a part of this project too! You can contribute by visiting Our Fundraising site at NC Green Power.
