Help Red Lodge Go Green!

The house was built in 1975 and was purchase ‘As Is’. It sits on 2.69 acres with almost 2 acres in mature timber providing a calm wholesome environment for our women’s program. Ducks, blue heron and other animals are visible from the front view of the house during the winter months as Beaver Creek overflows and becomes a wildlife refuge that is mesmerizing.

This moderately sized single family home is a solid structure capable of expanding in size. We are in the process of addressing the house modifications needed to sustain 8 to 12 women at a time as well as issues in regard to permits, commercial code and sustainability.

Solar Power is the Answer!

The house is ‘all electric’ and is wired for a single family. The house was built in 1975 and electrically is outdated for the demands of 10 women getting ready in the morning. Addressing energy consumption is at the forefront of sustainability. Red Lodge received recommendations from all the specialty trades in regard to the electric and energy efficiently options for the house. It is imperative we bring the house up to code and functionality. For the size of the house and the number of women living at the center, our energy needs to far beyond a single family home. After discussing all options and requirements, the Board of Directors determined solar power is our best option!

Solar power aligns with our mission, vision and values. Native American people are natural conservationists. Our traditions teach us never take more than what we need, and to be mindful of the earth. Solar power, new windows, doors, insulation, furnace, heat pump and hybrid hot water heaters can be installed at the Red Lodge Transition Center for Women. These improvements and upgrades will reduce our electric consumption, lower our carbon footprint by up to 90% and save the program thousands of dollars per year!
