Woodstock Farm Animal Sanctuary
In the spring of 2012, we installed a 25 kW PV array at the Woodstock Farm Animal Sanctuary in Willow, NY. Surrounded by the Catskill Mountains, WFAS provides shelter to cows, pigs, chickens, turkeys, ducks, sheep, and goats that have been rescued from abuse, neglect, and abandonment.
At the heart of their mission is the hands-on work of rescuing, rehabilitating, and caring for farm animal refugees, as well as educating the public about the treatment of animals raised for food. We felt that a PV array would go a long way to help lower the farm’s carbon footprint and raise public awareness of renewable energy. Using a NYSERDA grant to help pay for equipment, SOLARgeneration donated time and resources for the design, permitting, and installation of the array.
