Funding Needed: $112,000

The ranch does not have commercial power, and has partially relied on the sun for its electrical energy since 1996, when the first PV panels were installed. This project will update the old components of the solar renewable energy system, insuring that the renewable energy generated is stored at maximum capacity, while reducing maintenance needs.
