The concept of the Family Enrichment Center (FEC) is to bring together non-profits in one site where services and expenses can be shared. Through the sharing of the facility and resources all member groups can do more for the communities they serve. In 2011, we commissioned a 27.6 kW solar electric system which was installed on the grounds of the property. Solar energy benefits all our organizations, our community and our environment.
The FEC is enrolled in the Energy Stewards Partnership and has undergone a We Energies Energy Audit to reduce energy consumption. Motion sensors, light timers, programmable thermostats, LED lighting and energy star products are used throughout the building. Staff is reminded to turn off equipment when not in use. We share: Conference rooms, audio visual equipment, internet, copier, fax, postage meter, bulk permit, office equipment, kitchen, bathrooms, storage, staff, most of all we share a heart for serving the community and EXPERTISE! Partner agencies save over $50,000 per year through the FEC’s shared space and services.
