Salvation Army’s Ray & Joan Kroc Corps Community Center Upgrades to New Solar Power System

The system, provided by Novitium Energy in conjunction with Madison Energy Investments, required no upfront cost to The Salvation Army. The new system is expected to produce approximately 1.8 million kilowatt hours of electricity per year and meet 56% of Salvation Army Camden Kroc Center’s energy needs. Over the next 15 years, the system will save the Center approximately $1.65 million energy costs, with an estimate $95,000 savings the first year.

Novium CEO Jeremy Conner shared, “Our partnership with The Salvation Army is so important that we all recognize the tremendous impact the organization is having not only in our local community, but in every corner of United States and beyond. We see our contribution to this project as an opportunity to give something back to The Salvation Army with substantial and lasting impact.”

Major Keith Maynor of the Salvation Army explained, “This is an exciting time for our organization. Not only will we save money with the new solar power system, but we will also eliminate a large amount of gaseous emissions at greenhouse effect, continuing a strong track record in environmental stewardship through the Camden Kroc Center The support we have received has been a tremendous blessing.

The event was attended by the official city councilor Chris Collins and received an invocation from Major Jong Woo Kim of the Salvation Army. Although unable to attend due to his responsibilities at the General Assembly, the member of the Assembly William Spearman recognized the Salvation Army and Novitium Energy by a congressional proclamation issued by the United States House of Representatives.
