Habitat Solar Project

We are so excited to partner with Habitat for Humanity Camrose and Solar Harvest.  Together we collaborating with the goal of putting solar panels onto the Camrose Restore.  

Have you ever thought being part of a solar project? Have you been limited by house direction, cost or there reasons? Habitat Solar project may be for you

An environmental cause with social benefits

This project will have several benefits.  It will reduce the carbon footprint of the store.  This will result in decreased utility costs by reducing consumption and distribution costs.  This will have a trickle down effect of saving Habitat money on operation costs.  In turn this will permit more money to be available to help them provide affordable housing for more families.

Habitat brings affordable home ownership to partner families who may not otherwise qualify for conventional mortgages.  These families obtain a home at fair market value, with interest free mortgages.  Their down payment is in the form of 500 sweat equity hours.  Habitat has a qualifying process to ensure they help build their partner families up for success.  Qualified Partner families have been screened and qualify with their income, debt load and credit score.

The benefits of homeownership are more than just a financial gain for these families.  It builds strength, stability and self-reliance within the entire family unit.  It can mean that 14 year old boy gets his own room.  That he no longer needs to share a room with his mom out of necessity. Or those parents that no longer needs to hold down multiple jobs just to provide the necessities.  Affordable home ownership will give these parents the gift of time to be with her children more.  What long term effect will that have for these children?  That is priceless.
