Solar Panels Installed

Solar panels have been installed on roofs of the buildings at Mount St. Francis.

As part of the ongoing Franciscan Earth Care Initiative, this will help bring down utility expenses while helping preserve our natural resources. Other improvements here at Mount St. Francis have included adding a geothermal component to the heating and air conditioning system, and a charging station for electric-powered vehicles.

The Franciscan Earth Care Initiative fosters collaboration between the Conventual Franciscans of the Province of Our Lady of Consolation and local partners in southern Indiana, involving the community in ‘green’ projects, educational programs, volunteer opportunities, and other partnerships.
