Go Solar!

Deer Park has been able to install 3 solar power arrays. The system started running in spring of 2008. It generates at least 90% of the Monastery's use of electricity.

Thanks to the support of many friends we have been able to have our Teacher, Thay's vision of a solar energy system at Deer Park manifest. We hope that this can inspire people to first of all use less electricity, by bringing awareness to what we really need. We also hope that the system can inspire others to follow our example.  Together we want to find ways to care for our planet and reverse the process on Global Warming.

You can find some specifics about the system in the brochure below, that was used in the process of raising funds for this project.
