Harvesting Solar Energy for the Greater Good

Caring for the environment with an aim toward reducing costs for residents, Attic Angel installed photovoltaic solar panels on the two wings of independent living apartments, with more in the works.

The panels are expected to replace 60% or more of electricity delivered by power plant to the senior living facility. A Solar for Good grant from RENEW Wisconsin has extended the rooftop project to also include The Haven, Attic Angel's memory care unit, in spring 2019. A test rig has been in use at Attic Angel Prairie Point to determine the best type of solar panel that best fits the community's requirement.

Researchers included four graduate students at the University of Wisconsin College of Engineering, working under the direction of Professor Emeritus Jon McCarthy, an Attic Angel resident, and Bjorn Thompson, chair of the Sustainability Committee of Attic Angel Community. Research continues with an eye toward placing solar panels within Prairie Point to benefit the 123 Attic Angel ranch-style homes in that neighborhood.

As of fall 2018, more than 30 Prairie Point residents had signed on to invest in the solar technology and leave a legacy for the future.

The Playing Field

The Playing Field Poster

Children affected by trauma such as homelessness and those with special needs such as autism spectrum disorders have different sensory needs for emotional support that helps them learn to manage behaviors. Our dream is to create a play space that allows children to be successful while ... being kids! Some of our plans:

  • A large open space for running (crowded spaces are often a behavior trigger for children)
  • High fencing and an appropriate climbing structure (children impacted by trauma or those on the autism spectrum often take bigger risks and climb higher)
  • Sensory panels that welcome independent play when children are agitated
  • A maze for children to walk through (this helps the brain to organize)
  • Small structures where children can feel safe
  • Specially designed pieces to work large muscle groups

By helping children at this critical point in their development, your gift will be helping the future of our community!
