Skid Row housing goes solar

This morning I went to the St. George Hotel to announce the installation of solar panels at this permanent supportive housing facility operated by the Skid Row Housing Trust. The solar panels were made possible by the BP Solar Neighbors Program, which engages celebrities to raise awareness of the benefits of solar power. Celebrities have solar panels installed at their home and the BP Solar Neighbors Program installs a solar power system free of charge for a low-income family. Actor Will Ferrell made possible the solar panel installation at the St. George and this was the first multi-family project by BP Solar Neighbors.
