Yogaville Goes Solar




Satchidananda Ashram-Yogaville, in Buckingham, is a unique cooperative community, spiritual center and Integral Yoga academy that offers yoga programs from world-renowned instructors and maintains a unique Light of Truth Universal Shrine (LOTUS) temple, celebrating the unity in all religions. Now, they are implementing renewable solar energy to help power their campus.

      With a large meeting hall, two large dormitories, a library, a teaching academy and more than a dozen other facilities, energy costs comprise a large portion of Yogaville’s expenses. They found that solar energy had evolved enough over the past few years to become not only affordable, but a good investment for the future of the community. Generating an anticipated cost savings of $20,000 per year, the solar roof array designed for Sivananda Hall is also a solid expression of Yogaville’s principles in standing for a healthy planet through the use of clean energy. The pilot project is in the design stage and should be installed by the end of the year.
