WISCONSIN RAPIDS — In the Summer of 2017, McMillan Memorial Library installed the largest rooftop solar array in Wisconsin Rapids.
The array transitioned the Library to a greener future, saves the library money, and provides green power to our community. Two thirds of the $420,000 project is paid for, with Viking Electric and its owner Scott Prahl, funding much of the project and utilizing the associated tax credits. The Library’s Endowment also contributed funds for the project. McMillan Library is hoping for community support to fund the remaining third of the cost.
Clean Green Action is a local nonprofit environmental group that focuses on sustainability and reducing impact on the environment. In keeping with its mission to create a sustainable community through education, recycling and conservation efforts, Clean Green Action supports the library’s use of solar and contributed $250 to the Solar Power@McMillan fund.
Clean Green Action encourages other organizations and individuals to contribute. Donations are tax deductible and will be matched by a supporter up to $80,000. Donate by completing a form available at the library or on the library’s website at https://squareup.com/store/mcmillan-library
