"In addition to renewable energy coinciding with our traditional Maskoke values, our ecovillage community is exceptionally remote which inherently necessitates a completely off-grid lifestyle. This solar array, supported by the Solar Moonshot Program, is providing power for our community kitchen and our Maskoke language immersion school where we are growing new fluent speakers of our ancient, yet endangered, language. Solar power is not only the primary energy source for community buildings in our ecovillage, but through a solar array, our dependence on Sun for cooling and for powering LED lights, for instance, reinvigorates our traditional cosmological worldview wherein we daily offer gratitude to Sun - a sacred manifestation of Creator."
