Solar Sunflower System
In a partnership between the Henry Vilas Zoo, Madison Gas & Electric and H&H Solar Energy Services, the Zoo has installed a large solar energy panel in the Flamingo yard that feeds into the local power system. This solar panel generates clean energy from the sun, producing one-quarter of the annual energy use of a home. It protects the environment by offsetting 3,900 pounds of carbon dioxide emissions and avoids burning 2,700 pounds of coal per year.
