United Nations Sustainable Development Goal # 11
Make cities and human settlements inclusive, safe, resilient and sustainable. Solar power is the conversion of energy from sunlight into electricity. In this same way, having a unique solar "statement" in our community is a way of converting climate action education into awareness and engagement. We are putting up a symbol for sustainability in Jackson.
