Austin Habitat for Humanity Goes Solar with 254 kW Meridian Array


Austin‘s Habitat for Humanity Restore and Headquarters is the latest Habitat project to go solar.

The sun will be shining on the Habitat Restore and Headquarters when they move into their new location next month. Meridian Solar will install a 254 kW system on the rooftop and awnings of the new Habitat building.

This project is expected to save Austin Habitat for Humanity 65 percent in energy costs over the next 25 years.

Greg Anderson, Director of Operations for Austin Habitat for Humanity, said, “We are excited to partner with Meridian Solar. We believe in sustainability not only for our communities, but for Austin as a whole. Using proven green technology keeps us true to this belief.”

Meridian has completed a number of projects with non-profits, including Goodwill Industries and the Boy Scouts. Meanwhile, Habitat has installed solar on many of its homes, both throughout the country and around the world.
