Patients getting their teeth cleaned at Olson Dental Clinic in Sturgeon Bay will be helping support renewable energy. Two solar arrays are being installed on green space outside the clinic on Michigan Street. Contractor John Hippensteel of Lake Michigan Wind and Sun Limited says while solar panels won’t generate all of the clinics’ power needs, the array will benefit the community.
Hippensteel says with a work life of up to 50-years, solar arrays can keep converting sunlight into electricity well after they’ve paid for themselves. For more information on solar energy click here.
