To Go 100% Solar, We Need a Solid Plan

With last year's contributions, we reduced our energy consumption by an estimated 15%. Thank you donors!

Now we are working with Resource Engineering Group of Crested Butte to create a plan and cost estimate for converting our 12 buildings to electrical so we can power the entire campus with solar panels.

In the video below, August Hasz, the lead engineer, explains what Net Zero Carbon means and how CMZC has all the ingredients to realize this vision.

The plan will also suggest structural changes for additional energy efficiency in each building. With your help, the "low hanging fruit" recommendations can be implemented right away and already generate additional savings this winter.

Our next action steps are:

  • A campus-wide fuel conversion plan including solar design and electrical infrastructure plan,
  • Additional insulation for 6 guest spaces and 1 residential cabin,
  • Complete conversion to electrical in our main two guest cabins.

Please support these crucial steps to realize our ecological vision and societal responsibility: a Net Zero Carbon Campus by 2020.

Thank you for your interest and support!

The CMZC Team
