May 8, 2020 – Good Energy Solutions is pleased to share the story of an anonymous gift that was donated to Just Food, a Douglas County non-profit. The anonymous donors, two Lawrence citizens who wanted to do something positive for the local community, liked the idea of reducing Just Food’s operating costs while decreasing the carbon footprint of the electrical energy that is supplied to their building.
“We received a phone call after the announcement of our Solar Giveaway winner, Sunrise Project, appeared in the Lawrence Journal-World. The donors were inspired by the story and wanted to donate a system themselves, to an additional non-profit organization,” said Kevin Good, Owner of Good Energy Solutions. “The donors chose Just Food to receive the array to help reduce their utility costs and lower their fossil fuel demands, effectively reducing their impact to global warming.”
The 11.5kW Solar Array will help Just Food reduce their electrical consumption by more than 1,200 kilowatt hours per month on average; enough energy to supply about 20% of their energy needs.
“We are so grateful for these anonymous donors who are contributing such an incredibly generous gift to support Just Food’s environmental and financial sustainability through solar energy. Our operations require us to use a lot of energy to run our coolers and freezers and this makes a significant impact on our energy usage” said, Elizabeth Keever, Executive Director of Just Food.
“It was a great surprise that our original gift of the Solar Giveaway program would lead to the ripple effect of this generous donation,” said Shana Good. “Just Food is an amazing organization that has really stepped up during the Pandemic, as always. We are honored to be able to support their efforts by reducing their energy costs and in awe of the generosity of the donors. This gift will keep on giving for decades into the future and enable Just Food to reduce their operating costs by many thousands of dollars and reduce the need to burn thousands of pounds of coal every year.”
