Sisters going solar: Green Bay convent taps into alternative energy
A religious community on Green Bay’s north side is going green in a big way.

The Sisters of St. Francis of the Holy Cross has launched construction of a 400-panel solar energy installation believed to be one of the largest such systems in Wisconsin.

Located near Nicolet Drive and Church Road, the alternative energy system is designed to generate enough electricity to power about a dozen average-sized homes.

The Sisters of St. Francis plan to harness the power to reduce energy costs in their nearby convent, creating savings projected to surpass $500,000 over the next 20-plus years.

The solar site is the largest of its kind in the city of Green Bay, the third largest in Brown County and the 18th largest in the state, according to a spokeswoman for the religious order.
