Ribbon Cutting of LifeLine Animal Project Community Animal Center’s Brand New Solar System

WHAT:             Georgia Tech Students Help the State’s Largest Animal Shelter Go Solar 

ABOUT:          LifeLine Animal Project, in partnership with RE-volv, is having a formal ribbon

cutting and pet adoption event to celebrate the installation of their new solar system. RE-volv Solar Ambassador fellows from Georgia Tech University did the initial outreach to LifeLine nearly 2 years ago, inspiring this project. Switching to solar will allow the nonprofit to save $1.6 million on electrical bills over the system's 20 year lifespan which they can re-invest into finding more animals homes in Georgia. 

This is significant because nonprofits, like Lifeline, face persistent barriers to getting their solar projects financed. Yet, there are strong government tax incentives for nonprofits to go solar, presenting a massive opportunity to build local communities and a just energy transition through spreading awareness of stories like LifeLine’s. Also, there is opportunity for Georgia Tech students and students across the nation to get involved in local climate action, learning the necassary skills to pursue a career in the rapidly growing clean energy space. 

WHEN: Saturday, March 30 at 11:00 AM

WHERE: 3180 Presidential Dr, Atlanta, GA 30340

WHO: Guest speakers at the event include:

  • Chandra Farley, Chief Sustainability Officer of the City of Atlanta 

  • Patty Durand, Candidate for Georgia’s Public Service Commissioner

  • Russell Seifert, CEO of Creative Solar (project installer)

  • Kaiya Murphy, Just Energy Associate with Partnership for Southern Equity
