Camp Courage receives $24,000


Wright-Hennepin Cooperative Electric Association (WH) recently presented True Friends – Camp Courage, a WH commercial member, with a $24,110 grant to help with the installation of energy-efficiency equipment at its facility near Maple Lake, Minn.  
Energy grants are awarded to businesses that install energy-efficient equipment, reducing electricity consumption. As a non-profit organization, True Friends – Camp Courage qualified for these funds to assist with conservation.  They used the funds to help cover the costs of ground source heat pumps that will be used in two cabins. The new ground source heat pumps are estimated to reduce electric use by more than 44,800 kilowatt hours annually.
