Stone Zoo Solar Project

Here at Zoo New England, we continue to strengthen our commitment to clean energy, and the future's looking bright!

Stone Zoo was recently awarded $3 million in funding for a solar project in our parking lot. This project will reduce 95% of Stone Zoo’s reliance on electrical energy powered by fossil fuels. The solar energy system will produce entirely clean energy. Our switch to solar avoids burning 700,000 pounds of coal every year, and is the equivalent of planting 800 acres of trees!

While there will be some tree removal inside the parking lot bays, every tree removed will be replaced elsewhere on Zoo grounds.
