Redding, CA - Sundial Bridge (KVIP 98.1 & 98.7 FM/540 AM)
So let the sun shine in and KVIP will face it with a GRIN!!
Have your heard our announcers talking about how our 2 Redding signals KVIP 540 AM & 98.7 FM will soon be completely powered by Solar Energy? It's all due to our brand new 48-panel array that has been built at our tower site located East of Redding. After reading this article, please scroll down to view pictures of this beautiful structure. Currently, KVIP pays an average monthly power bill to broadcast these signals at about $800.00 per month (OUCH!). Our financial investment to build this "Green Energy" system will pay for itself in under 5 years. To the best of our knowledge, KVIP now operates Shasta County's first solar-powered radio station!
These 2 signals broadcast a totally unique format of programming as to what listeners may hear on our sister station KVIP FM 98.1 in Northern California. If you are not already tuning in, please visit our program guides found here at this website.
As a non-profit radio ministry, the Board of Directors and staff have prayerfully made focused effort to lesson our expenses as we seek to stay within projected yearly budgets. Even after these cost-trimming measures, it became apparent that we needed to look for other creative ways to save monies. Thus, KVIP radio approached a Redding area company named "Top Hat Energy Inc.". Its owner Terry Hufft, who loves this radio ministry, chose to provide this top-quality system at a deeply discounted price.
Now, here is another tremendous blessing... KVIP has been awarded a financial gift of a $25,000.00 Grant. This was provided by the "Elmer H. Schmidt Christian Broadcast Fund of Community Foundation of the North State" and it has paid for 50% of our cost to acquire this solar array! Also, KVIP wishes to express our appreciation to these listeners who volunteered to help prepare the ground before installation could begin: Mr. Ken Vaughn of Redding gave 2 weeks of his time to clear away all of the brush and trees with his chain saw! Mr. Thomas Wickware donated the payment for a day rental of a "Bob Cat" that was used to spread 18-yards of gravel to suppress any weeds that may try to grow. Last but not least, Sol Cranfill, owner of Stumpinator Stump Grinding donated his time and machine to remove 18 stumps below ground level!
