ROSEBURG, Ore. -- A pet adoption center in Roseburg is going green after cutting the ribbon on their new solar panels Wednesday.
They paid for the panels with a $130,000 grant from Pacific Power's Blue Sky Foundation.
Saving Grace’s Executive Director Wendy Kang said they'll put the money they'll be saving to good use.
“The production that comes off the solar arrays that we have here on the building are going to reduce our power bills by an estimated $5,000 a year, every year," Kang said. "For us, that translates into about 100 spays and neuters for cats in this community.”
To show their appreciation, the shelter is naming all orange cats and kittens with names related to the sun.
Sol, Ravi, Hyperion and Helios are all looking for new homes.
