Power the Tower — Help WDBX Go Solar!

Phase I: 100% Funded — 22 Rooftop Solar Panels Installed!
Phase II: Funding for elevated panels in the WDBX Backyard Garden


This summer, WDBX-FM will be working with local solar energy installer Advanced Energy Solutions to make WDBX the first solar-powered non-profit in Southern Illinois and POWER THE TOWER!

Phase one was a huge success and we have fully funded and installed 22 solar panels on the roof of WDBX. We are now embarking on the second phase, with a goal of completing a larger installation of elevated panels in the WDBX Backyard Garden.

With a 25-year warranty, and an expected life of over 30 years, your donation will continue to support WDBX for years to come. Make a donation to POWER THE TOWER by clicking the donate button to the right, or call 618-727-2845 for more information.

All donors will be credited in an educational display about WDBX’s Solar Initiative, and donors giving $250 or more will be included on a permanent plaque at the station. The top donors will be granted naming rights (some restrictions apply) to their panel, as well as access to seasonal reports about their panel’s output. Make a donation and POWER THE TOWER!
