Museum powers education and play with solar

PASO ROBLES — The Children’s Museum’s interactive displays, air blowers that send plastic balls whizzing through the air, and anything that uses electricity, will now be powered by a 15.2 kW clean solar energy system installed by the local solar energy company A.M. Sun Solar. “Our mission at A.M. Sun Solar is to ‘grow communities with the power of the sun,’” said Glen Covert, a partner at A.M. Sun Solar. “Installing the 15.2 kW solar system on the Children’s Museum was the perfect opportunity to do that. We reached out to our suppliers and were able to get the equipment at cost for the installation. We also cut all of the profit out of the project and are raising even more in March to give back to the museum. We couldn’t be more excited about saving the Children’s Museum money and supporting the important work they do for the community.”
