The “nitty gritty” of why we celebrate Earth Day resonates strongly in the smiles of our children. The installation of solar power systems on every roof on the planet (best case scenario!), is one part of a complex set of solutions. Still, the why of “saving the Planet” is still “saving it for our kids, and our neighbors’ children, and the children in other states, countries and all their children to come.”

These kindergarteners sang their hearts out at a recent Earth Day dedication for the Hebrew Academy solar power system. The celebration took place at their Huntington Beach, CA campus.

For these children, some pretty special adults made the system happen for the school. “Green” visionary Rabbi Yitchak Newman is the dean of the school. From left to right in the “ribbon cutting” photo above are donors Charles Karp and Peter Shapiro, Helio Energy Solutions’s Steve LoRusso, Adrian Taylor of Sharp amd Mayor Debbie Cook. Sharp Solar Energy Solutions Group worked with integration firm, Helio Energy Solutions, to insure the system was perfect! Huntington Beach Mayor Debbie Cook, an avid “green” supporter, came out and helped dedicate the system.

It takes all of us working together to insure Earth Day can continue to be celebrated for decades to come!
