Solar Power

These solar panels are being installed on the roof of a Habitat house in Milwaukee’s Park West neighborhood. The house and several others in the distressed neighborhood are part of Habitat’s national Neighborhood Revitalization Initiative, an effort to improving housing condition by providing services that enhance the overall quality of life across struggling neighborhoods.
