ARL Goes Solar!
Animal Rescue League Wildlife Center Selected to Receive Solar Donation from Green Mountain Energy Sun Club®
$50,000 awarded to fund new renewable energy installation for Animal Rescue League Wildlife Center!
The Animal Rescue League Wildlife Center was selected by the Green Mountain Energy Sun Club® to receive a $50,000 donation to fund the purchase and installation of a new solar installation. This donation enables us to promote renewable energy and lower our electricity bill so we can better serve the injured and orphaned wild animals of our community. The Sun Club is a unique program enabling Green Mountain Energy Company employees and residential customers, including many in the Pittsburgh area, to donate solar power to non-profit organizations like the ARL. The solar facility is expected to be installed later this year.
“The Animal Rescue League Wildlife Center is thrilled to be the recipient of the Green Mountain Grant. This donation will assist us in updating the infrastructure of the Center, and better meet the needs of our patients, while reducing our carbon footprint.” said Jill Argall, Director of the Wildlife Center. It’s just one way that we can make the world a better, cleaner place for both human beings and wildlife alike! “Wildlife rehabilitation and environmental conservation go hand and hand, and now we have the opportunity to serve native wildlife in a more environmentally responsible manner.”
The Sun Club receives hundreds of non-profit applicants for the solar installations it grants annually. The Animal Rescue League Wildlife Center was selected because of its mission and contributions to the community, as well as having an interest in protecting the environment and educating those it serves on solar energy.

“Solar energy has so many unique applications, and we’re proud to see it come to life at environmentally conscious non-profits” said Tony Napolillo, Sun Club program manager, Green Mountain Energy Company. “We exist to help worthy organizations promote solar power.”
