Indiegogo Crowdfunding Campaign Update

Thank you to everyone who has contributed to our Indiegogo campaign, “Solar Power for Habitat for Humanity Families:”

With your donations and a major contribution from Bank of the West, we are currently close to having sufficient funds to solar power the first two houses:

1st House: Benson Neighborhood (Rehab) started in March
2nd House: South Omaha (Rehab) started in May
3rd House: South Omaha (Rehab) started in May
4th House: North Omaha (New) started in April
5th House: North Omaha (New) July start

These local families will be able to reduce their monthly energy costs by harnessing power from the sun for the next 20 to 25 years!

The money they save can be spent on food, healthcare, education, and other needs, benefiting their families and communities for a very long time.

Each solar hot water system is compact but powerful, generating about the same amount of energy per day as a 3-kilowatt solar electric system, or twelve 250-watt solar panels.

If you haven’t contributed yet, there are two ways you can help: by making a contribution of $10 or more and by spreading the word about our project to your family, friends, co-workers and neighbors.

All Indiegogo funds will go directly to Habitat for Humanity of Omaha for these five demonstration solar-powered low-income houses, and all donations are tax deductible.

Your gift will pay you back, greening your community and raising awareness about solar energy and how it benefits people and the environment!

Thank you for supporting renewable energy!
