A new proposed solar garden in Duluth's Lincoln Park neighborhood would help provide electricity for Veterans and help struggling families with utility bills.

The project is being spearheaded by Ecolibrium3, a "non-profit dedicated to inspiring and leading change in our community toward an equitable and sustainable future," and is planned for an area between I-35 and West Michigan St.

The planned 40 kW solar array will be made up of 120 solar panels and generate over $300,000 in renewable energy in its expected 25-year lifespan.

The project is expected to be completed by December 31st, 2019 and will help assist over 500 families and vets in the nearby Duluth Veterans’ Place transitional housing.
