Wednesday, August 27th HelioPower’s own Steve LoRusso will join solar power industry executives and political dignitaries at the Solar Energy Industries Association (SEIA) SunFest Party in Denver for the Democratic National Convention. The event is billed as an outdoor concert and solar festival powered by the sun and will be held at Coors Field.
Clean energy sector venture capitalist and musical talent, Chuck McDermott, opens the show. Steve follows with two songs supporting the environmental movement, Wake Up Neighbor, which he wrote and Wonderful World.
Steve said, “I played Wake Up Neighbor 2 years ago at the Sharp Annual Meeting. Rhone Resch, President of the SEIA was a guest speaker. Armstrong’s Wonderful World has become somewhat of a theme song for Earth Day, so it is very appropriate as a vision for the solar power industry.”
The SunFest program includes Rhone Resch, who will deliver the welcome remarks followed by presentations from Denver Mayor John W Hickenlooper, Congressman Paul W. Hodes of New Hampshire, Arizona Governor Jane Napolitano, Governor Deval Patrick of Massachusetts, Bobby Kennedy Jr., Congressman Steny Hoyer of Maryland and Congressman John Hall of New York.
Excerpts from Steve’s song Wake Up Neighbor (printed with his permission):
Wake Up, Wake Up Neighbor don’t let it get you down
Work with solar energy and there will be enough to go around…
Look Up, Look Up Neighbor and see what can be found
If we work with solar energy there’re be enough to go around…
If you look up in the sky you’ll see the sun shining the light of liberty
There’s power in the sun, it’s not just rainbows in the sky.
If we’d only learn to work with the light, we’d set our nation free
Freedom, energy of the light, giving us all that we need!
