Pittsburgh Non-Profit Gets Adventurous with Solar

The Green Mountain Energy TM Sun ClubTM has made its first solar donation in Pittsburgh to Venture Outdoors, a non-profit that encourages people to “GET OUTDOORS!” The donation consisted of three portable solar generators to be used at outdoor events without a source of electricity. They were dedicated at the 2014 Venture Outdoors Fest, where one of the solar generators powered the mic and speaker system during the ceremony, then provided the power for the music which followed.

“We’re thrilled to be bringing a little more sunshine to this beautiful and unique city,” said Tony Napolillo, Sun Club Program Manager, Green Mountain Energy Company. “All of our Pittsburgh customers help bring solar energy to non-profits through Green Mountain’s monthly contribution to the Sun Club , and it’s a great honor to come here and present this mobile solar technology to an organization that’s helping to make Pittsburgh such a wonderful place to live.”

This is the 63rd solar dedication from the Sun Club, which is a program empowering Green Mountain Energy Company and its residential customers, employees and supporters  to donate solar power to sustainably minded non-profit organizations. Since the program’s founding in 2002, the Sun Club has donated more than $3 million to help install over 650 kilowatts of solar power at great organizations around the country.
