Let's convert CMZC to solar power. We're on our way to a Zero Carbon Campus...

132 Solar Panels for the Crestone Mountain

Over the past two years, we reduced our greenhouse gas emissions from propane and electrical by 27% per person-night.

In 2019, we’ve raised $119,000 for 132 solar panels that will reduce our emissions by an additional 75%. Construction will begin in March 2020.

A big shout out to all the donors who made this happen!

We are now expanding our goal to
$170,000
to begin the conversion
of the remaining fossil-fuel heating systems
to electrical.

The first step is a necessary campus-wide upgrade of our electrical infrastructure. The first building to be converted will be our meditation hall, the Zendo (see image above).

If we reach our goal, these additional transformations can happen in conjunction with the construction of the solar array in March/April.

Please consider a contribution today
to take care of the Earth
and of Crestone Mountain Zen Center,
our practice home.

All solar savings will be invested in more and more green technology to eventually bring our emissions to zero.

Thank you for your friendship and care!

The CMZC Team
