Ribbon Cutting Ceremony for Dr. Bronner's Solar Launch Party

bronner's solar launch partyLast Friday, HelioPower was invited to attend Dr. Bronner's Ribbon Cutting Ceremony as special guests for their solar launch party. Dr. Bronner's unveiled their new solar photovoltaic (PV) array, which is a 346 kW DC solar carport system located at their primary manufacturing and distribution facility in Southern California.

For those of you who are not familiar with the company, Dr. Bronner’s is a family-owned business committed to honoring the vision of their founder Emanuel Bronner by making socially and environmentally responsible products of the highest quality, and by dedicating profits to help make a better world.

The ceremony kicked off with an inspirational speech from Dr. Bronner’s Strategic Advisor and CSR Manager, Kris Lin-Bronner, and the Mayor of Vista, Judy Ritter, following a reception with coffee and muffins.

HelioPower’s President, Jonah Liebes, was also privileged to give a speech and to announce and congratulate the winner of our special raffle (shout out to our smart thermostat winner, Anthony Tripp!).

Overall, after a ride on the fire truck and a mini tour of the factory, the ribbon cutting ceremony proved to be exciting and innovative!

Thank you to Dr. Bronner’s for inviting us. We were proud to be part of such a memorable event. As a result, HelioPower was able to educate participants about conservation and the sustainable benefits of solar energy.
