Abstract

For the past 10-15 years, the HIV/AIDS population in Worcester increases by 15% annually. As a non-profit organization which supplies non- medical services to those affected by HIV/AIDS; AIDS Project Worcester, Inc. (APW) has a demand for greater funding. In order to sustain the client services, lowering operating costs is necessary. Installing a new roof and implementing green technology, like solar panels, are ways to reduce energy costs. We found by implementing 35 kW photovoltaic system, APW is able to save $960 per month, which is 42.3% of their energy bill.
