ALBANY, Ore. -- The Boys and Girls Club of Albany is going to save some serious cash by going green.
Shrinking your carbon footprint can also mean reducing the cost of utilities.
Forty-thousand square feet will be powered by solar panels, covering the club’s teen center and indoor soccer field.
The project cost $200,000 and was paid for with funding from Blue Sky and the Energy Trust of Oregon.
The club said it will reduce their power bill by up to 90 percent, saving $15,000 per year. The panels are expected to last 35 to 40 years and should be fully paid off in just three.
