  • Educational example for our membership and our larger East End community (e.g., link to STEM education in our local schools).
  • Community leadership.  Provide a template for other non-profit institutions considering solar.
  • Support the City’s Climate Action Plan 3.0 to reduce greenhouse gas emissions 50% by 2030.
  • Replace the leaking roof over the ELC
  • Tikkun Olam, repair the world.
