New England Clean Energy is proud to be helping Mass Audubon achieve its goal of solar on every one of its 20 staffed wildlife sanctuaries. But its commitment to green energy doesn’t stop there. The environmental education nonprofit has also installed solar on this “Green Barn” at Drumlin Farm Wildlife Sanctuary, and on the nearby grounds at its headquarters.

What does the clean energy from this particular solar system do for Mass Audubon? The organization’s website says it best:

“The solar array atop Drumlin Farm’s Green Barn…offsets the energy consumption of both the educational classroom and the work area housed in the barn. It also supports the environmental controls for the root cellar in the basement of the barn, where our root crops are stored in the winter months for sale to restaurants and our Community Supported Agriculture (CSA) program.”
