Masonic Village at Elizabethtown completed a one megawatt ground-mounted solar photovoltaic system in February 2011. Operated by Elizabethtown Solar Electric Partners, the solar plant produces approximately 1.2 million kWh of electricity per year which Masonic Village purchases, saving $40,000 – $60,000 in electric bills annually. The low profile system is located on a 5-acre plot on a hillside behind the Masonic Children’s Home. In October 2011, Citizens for Pennsylvania’s Future (PennFuture) presented the Green Power: Make It! award to Masonic Village.
