St. Mary’s Catholic Church and School

Hilbert, WI

Overview

St. Mary’s Catholic Church and School are home to a strong faithful congregation and learning facility in the small town of Hilbert, Wisconsin. To support their long-term goals of serving, they chose to incorporate renewable energy options to power the church and school buildings to offset energy costs.

Challenges

EnTech Solutions designed and installed Xcape microgrids to support the power needs of the church, school and daycare facilities on the site. The project needed to be completed without disruption to the congregational and academic activities taking place.

Solution

With their goal of achieving net zero emissions, St. Mary’s has already seen significant savings in their grid energy needs. The incorporation of Xcape microgrids to power the church and education facilities has positioned them with resilient, renewable energy for today and well into the future.
