Blockfest Preview & Photos of EHP’s Energy-Efficient Upgrades

By Année Tousseau, August 2016 — 

Sustainable Silicon Valley’s Net Positive Communities team has been working with Ecumenical Hunger Program to help them become more energy-efficient. Thanks to a grant from Mitsubishi and technical expertise from SunWork, EHP’s East Palo Alto campus got a makeover with solar panels and a cool roof. Learn more details via our blog post here.

Here’re a few shots of some of the people who made it all possible—and don’t forget to stop by EHP’s Blockfest on Saturday, Aug 13, 1 – 5 pm, to see the finished results!

It’s a free community party with activities, food, music, and entertainment at the EHP campus at 2411 Pulgas Avenue, East Palo Alto. Hope to see you there!
