Indiegogo Crowdfunding Campaign Update

Thank you to everyone who has contributed to our Indiegogo campaign, “Solar Power for Habitat for Humanity Families:” www.tinyurl.com/Omahasolar

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!

Inviting All Green Energy Supporters to an Earth Day Challenge!

To all Green Energy Supporters:

Nebraskans for Solar and Habitat for Humanity of Omaha have set a goal to increase the number of funders on our Indiegogo campaign to 50 or more by Earth Day Omaha this Saturday, April 19th: www.tinyurl.com/Omahasolar

Please make a contribution of $10 or more and help us reach our goal! And please share our campaign information with your families, friends, co-workers and neighbors.

Your gift will pay you back – greening our community and raising awareness about solar energy and how it benefits people and the environment.

And if you plan to come to Elmwood Park on Saturday to celebrate Earth Day, please stop by Nebraskans for Solar’s table to see the world’s smallest solar-powered racecar–and a very large group of solar-powered grasshoppers!

You can also view our campaign video, thanks to the Dundee Community Garden for lending us their solar power kit! We hope to see you there!
