Faith Technologies, a Menasha-based electrical contracting company, is building a clean energy microgrid to power the Gordon Bubolz Nature Preserve in Appleton.

It’s working with global connected technology company Schneider Electric to install the EcoStruxure Microgrid Advisor program, which will manage energy distribution throughout the 725-acre facility, including to a new 18,000-square-foot environmental center.

Faith Technologies will construct the microgrid, and is working alongside Appleton-based Boldt Construction on the environmental center.

The Gordon Bubolz Nature Preserve hosts educational outdoor programs for kids and adults. Programming include lessons on bird watching, geology, energy cycles of the forest and more.

The preserve also offers visitors options for ski and snowshoe rentals, and will have event space in the environmental center once it’s complete in early 2018.
