The Grand River Conservation Campus at The Nature Conservancy’s Morgan Swamp Preserve is a place where people can enjoy nature through many recreational opportunities, including hiking, paddling, fishing, nature watching, and more. A new 7.4 kW solar panel installation at the Grand River Conservation Campus will help the institution save money, reduce its carbon footprint and expand the public dialogue about renewable energy.
The donation comes after talks between The Nature Conservancy (TNC) and Kokosing Solar began in 2021. Kokosing Solar was introduced to help The Nature Conservancy advance their mission to conserve the lands and waters on which all life depends. In Ohio, this includes supporting its work to build renewable energy in ways that benefit people and nature.
“Kokosing Solar is grateful for the work of The Nature Conservancy as they help Ohioans understand how the transition to clean, renewable energy is linked to job creation, diversification of our economy, clean air and a healthy climate. Our donation project has dual benefits for the non-profit organization. The solar system will cover a portion of the nonprofit’s utility costs, while incorporating the topic of solar energy into environmental education offered by Dr. James C. at the Bissell Nature Center. Conservation Campus,” says Jeff Greenfield, director of solar strategy at Kokosing Solar.
A rooftop solar array will help power a picnic pavilion, nature center and electric vehicle charging stations.
