Solar Energy

The Ney Nature Center received funding through Le Sueur County and the Clean Energy Resource Teams (CERTs) to install a 4.2 KW Solar Array in June of 2016. The panels were installed by Kriha Electric (Montgomery, MN). This system reduces the carbon footprint of the Nature Center by generating much of the electricity that we use.
