The generosity of individuals and businesses in the solar industry continues to surprise and delight all of us here at Unirac. We would be remiss in not recognizing members of the Unirac team who went above and beyond to help bring this project to fruition. Our thanks and gratitude go out to Klaus Nicolaedis and Todd Ganshaw. They brought us the project in the first place. Our inhouse solar design advisor, Jon Neal, and our solar permitting champion Sai Uppu were brilliant. They worked up the design and permitting packets that were needed and made several adjustments and edits along the way. Our west coast and central sales teams were instrumental in soliciting donors. Thank you for your tenacity. We also want to recognize Peter Lorenz, our CEO, and the Unirac leadership team that has supported “Better Solar For All” since inception. Thank you for your vision. If the COVID-19 pandemic has shown us anything about our industry, it is that we are resilient, we are tenacious, and we care about our fellow human beings. All of you are solar believers and—much more—you are solar heroes.
Joy Junction is an organization here in Albuquerque, New Mexico, that provides critical assistance to the underserved and lends a helping hand up, not just a handout. The incredibly vulnerable homeless families and individuals that they serve have no means to self-quarantine or shelter-in-place. Although they are a faith-based organization, they do not discriminate based on sex, sexual orientation, race, color, age, national origin, or religion. No one is turned away and more importantly, families are kept together. This distinguishes them from other shelters in the area. The needs of the organization are even more pronounced than they were pre-COVID-19, and we can ease some of that burden through this solar project. Going solar will help the organization divert hundreds of dollars a month away from electricity costs and towards the important work they do in our community every single day.
