Project Description

Project / Program Description

Knowledge Quest (KQ) is a nonprofit organization that has actively promoted youth and community development among families in the Soulsville neighborhood for over nineteen years. Soulsville is replete with rich cultural assets around music, food and faith along with proud local residents. It is also home to one of America’s most significant poverty crisis communities. EnLIGHTen Soulsville will engage local economic conditions, head-on, by modeling and promoting cost savings associated with renewable energy usage. They will develop a 25kW PV system through multiple roof-top installations inclusive of a multi-family apartment community; school-age classrooms; a church and future restaurant.
