PARKERSBURG, W.Va. (WTAP) – The Mid-Ohio Valley Chamber of Commerce is hosting a ribbon cutting for Habitat for Humanity’s restoration of Vienna.

This ribbon cutting was held to introduce the new solar panels installed on top of the restoration.

Restoration prides themselves on repurposing to provide more for the community so of course the solar panels are used solar panels stocked by Pickering Energy Solutions. Solar panels still have 20 years of useful life for restoration.

The Executive Director of Habitat for Humanity says since installation he has seen a 38% savings.

With those who save, Habitat for Humanity hopes to transform the savings into a housing fund.

One of the main goals of the restoration is to provide some funds to help us build homes. If we can cut our expenses like we are in this particular metro that money will go directly to help build the houses,” said Executive Director, Alvin Phillips.

Phillips has not ruled out the possibility of adding more solar panels but currently has no plans in place.
