Donated Paint to Beautify the Carport - 07/03/12

The following post is a project update from Nick Gauna, Campaign Organizer for the West Coast and Pacific Northwest , and the Black Rock Solar Grassroots campaign that raised $2,550 for installation of a solar power array at The Shade Tree.

An unexpected—but welcome—update from our friends at Black Rock Solar.
The Black Rock Solar team has diligently worked to fully erect the carport frame, and installation of the solar panels should begin soon. While all this was going on, a construction company took notice and generously offered its services and expertise to help beautify this project. Baja Construction provided all the paint and labor for the carport, which is now ready for the final stages of installation. Check out photos of the finished carport frame below. Major fist bumps to Baja Construction from the Groupon Grassroots team!

Paint and labor for the carport were graciously donated by Baja Construction 7/3/2012

Black Rock Solar is cruising right along getting the solar-power array installed at the Shade Tree. Last update, we saw the delivery of the solar materials and the demolition of the lot to clear for installation. Justin has updated me with progress on the completed solar carport (which serves as the base for the solar panels). Here are some photos from the construction:

Las Vegas – It was a pleasure working with Justin, Southern Nevada program manager, and featuring the great work of Black Rock Solar. Building solar-power arrays at reduced prices for a variety of nonprofits and other organizations, Black Rock Solar identified The Shade Tree (a Groupon Grassroots alum) as the organization they would help as part of our Earth Day re-launch spectacular.
