Powering Hope: Solar for Habitat Families

Habitat for Humanity Guelph Wellington is on a mission to make our 2024/2025 Speedvale build project more sustainable and environmentally friendly! We’re raising funds in partnership with the Rotary Clubs to install a solar array that will not only reduce our carbon footprint but also lower long-term energy costs for the families we serve. This ambitious project to unite the goals of building affordable homes and reaching our net-zero commitments will not only set a strong example for how different builders and community partners might come together but will be used across Canada to inform other similar projects, amplifying the impact of your support of this visionary undertaking.

Learn more about this project below; and stay tuned for updates!
