WAUSAU, Wis. (WAOW) — On Monday, the Community Partners Campus (CPC) broke ground on newly installed solar panels from Northwind solar at the top of the non-profit hub.

The CPC’s Executive Director Tara Glodowski said she expects the panels to save about a 30% offset on electric bills for the year.

It should also keep renting costs affordable for the several non-profits housed inside the campus and stop rents from being raised for a time so they can focus on their actual operations to help different areas and needs of the community.

Northwind Solar Design Consultant Jordan Kaiser said there are several benefits for the organization utilizing solar.

“When you use a lot of energy there’s a potential to offset that energy and being that energy rates continue to increase, specifically over the next couple of years, it makes a sound investment for any organization looking for it,” said Kaiser.

The CPC went with Northwind because they had asked Aspirus for a recommendation on who they use for similar projects.

The CPC Board President Brian Gumness is also thinking about personally utilizing solar energy in his personal life.

“I do not have solar panels on my roof, but because of this installation and looking at they layout and design of my roof at my home, I have considered it and will more seriously look into doing it myself,” said Gumness.

There are no more projects in the works with renewable energy for the CPC, but Gumness said anything could be on the table for the future.
