RunWithSOLar5k Proceeds Run Directly to GRID Alternatives and The Solar Foundation

4 Nov 2015

Thanks to all of the dedicated members of the industry that braved the storm (literally) to kick-off Solar Power International (SPI) 2015 with the first-ever RunWithSOLar5k. Even with the rain, the event sold-out.

The best part (besides rain in dry Southern California)? 100 percent of registration fees went directly to The Solar Foundation and GRID Alternatives. Last week, Sol Systems’ CEO Yuri Horwitz and CFO George Ashton, along with Rhone Rhesch, President of CEO of the Solar Energy Industries Association (SEIA), met with GRID Alternatives and The Solar Foundation to present the proceeds.
