4,419 heads of lettuce

As a population, we need clean water to drink and to produce our food. Growing a single head of lettuce requires 3.5 gallons of clean water. Good thing John Meissner installed solar, helping save more than 15,065 gallons of water...enough for 4,419 heads of lettuce.


2,812 heads of broccoli

Growing crops uses a ton of water (it takes more than 5 gallons of water to grow a single head of broccoli), so good thing John Meissner installed solar. In total, they have saved 15,065 gallons of water, enough to grow 2,812 heads of broccoli.


39 trees planted

John Meissner has quite the green thumb. Their solar installation has offset the carbon emissions equivalent to planting 39 trees.


Enough water for 22 showers

John Meissner doesn't take clean water for granted. Their solar installation has saved enough water to take 22 showers.


2,408 pots of coffee

There will be no yawning for John Meissner, their solar installation has produced enough electricity to make 2,408 pots of coffee.

If Wind For Schools can install solar, so can you. Ask around about how installing solar has gotten easy.


Clean energy technologies don't use a lot of water

To produce the same amount of energy as John Meissner's solar installation, a nuclear power plant would consume 18,829 gallons of water. Did you know that on average, nuclear power plants use more than 6,700 gallons of water per household per year? That's enough water to fill up a bath tub more than 250 times.


Solar installations avoid carbon emissions

To produce the same amount of energy as John Meissner's solar installation, a coal plant would release 59,822 pounds of carbon dioxide. To put that in perspective, approximately every two pounds of carbon dioxide is equivelant to one pound of coal.


29,148 pounds of dirty coal

John Meissner's solar installation has produced the same amount of energy as burning 29,148 pounds of coal. The type of electricity powering your home varies by your location, but suffice it to say that the more clean energy that is on the grid, the less we will need to rely on fossil-based fuels.
