Going green: Ozanam gets solar panels, upgraded kitchen

BY STEVE CLARK STAFF WRITERMay 21, 2019

Brownsville’s Bishop E. San Pedro Ozanam Center homeless shelter has a new kitchen and enough solar panels to run the entire complex, thanks to help from Valley Baptist Legacy Foundation, the Kenedy Memorial Foundation, United Way of Southern Cameron County and a number of other donors.

Victor Maldonado, the shelter’s executive director, said the cost of improvements was around $190,000, though the private individual who covered the cost of the solar installation wished to remain anonymous. The solar equipment installation was performed by Corpus Christi-based SPI Go Green, which donated its services.
