We’re thrilled to announce a new solar installation project at Milwaukee’s Redeemer Lutheran Church. The commercial solar installation will be used to power daily operations at the church, including lighting and technology in occupied spaces, kitchen operations and facilities. Once completed at the end of this month, the solar power system is projected to offset electricity costs by 54 percent. The installation, which first began in September with structural engineering of the historic building, includes more than 60 PV panels to be mounted on the southern edge of the highest point of the rooftop, spanning approximately 1,000 square feet. 

Redeemer Lutheran Church has been a staple of the Milwaukee community for more than a century. The new solar power system is one of many greening projects that church is currently undergoing. Other projects include a rooftop garden with honeybees, and a rainwater collection system for non-potable uses. 

“We are a church answering the call to take care of the earth God created us by changing the face of what a typical church looks like through greening initiatives and programs,” said Rev. Dr. Lisa Bates-Froiland, “Sun Badger Solar was the perfect partner to help move the vision to serve the Milwaukee community as best we can.”

Redeemer Church is in a community marked by both poverty and promise, and they’ve long been an active supporter of the neighborhood. Redeemer offers a free Noon Run Lunch in partnership with Marquette Campus Ministry student volunteers, and are also home to the Ziedler Center for Public Discussion, a nonprofit dedicated to bridging differences through facilitated conversation.

“The Redeemer Church installation is a great stage to showcase how solar power can serve a community through ongoing revitalization and new development, ultimately bringing cost savings and cleaner energy,” said Kris Sipe, Chief Operating Officer, Sun Badger Solar, “the solar display will be an excellent reminder of what can happen when a community comes together and reaches for a greater good.”

The project is just the latest in a series of solar panel installations for Sun Badger Solar throughout the Midwest, with the interest in both residential and commercial solar projects surging as the federal Solar Investment Tax Credit is scheduled to decrease at the end of the year. Through 2019, Illinois, Wisconsin and Minnesota have renewable energy incentives unique to each state. Check out a gallery of completed solar projects throughout the Midwest.
