Valencia, CA (PRWEB) October 23, 2014
Valencia’s Cry-Help Furniture Recycling charity is now being powered by the sun after a donation of solar panels by Zepyor Parseghian and the Solar Servicing Center as part of a four year plan to have 4,500 homes in Santa Clarita, California go green.
Cry-Help Furniture Recycling has been given the green makeover to mark the landmark of 1,000 homes being fitted with solar panels in the Santa Clarita Valley.
The installation at the charity is part of an international deal between Zepyor Parseghian’s Solar Servicing Center and the Taiwanese solar company Sung Sun, a Neo Solar Panel group company, and the Santa Clarita Chamber of Commerce.
The contract is believed to be the first solar licensed deal of its type and the biggest solar project for a community association in the US. It will help save homeowners around $40 million in reduced electricity bills and save nearly 133,500 tonnes of carbon over the next 25 years.
Zepyor Parseghian wanted to mark the landmark installation of panels to 1,000 homes by donating and fitting panels on a project that was making a difference in the Santa Clarita Valley. The panels, fitted by Solar Servicing Center, will significantly cut the charity’s electricity bills.
Cry-Help Furniture Recycling is supported by the City of Hope Trust which owns the green charity’s Valencia building. The charity recycles furniture to sell at a low cost to recovering addicts and their families that are unable to furnish their homes.
A delegation from Taiwan flew in to perform the official handover of the panels to the charity at its shop in Valencia. The event was attended by Sung Sun chairman Dr Frank Chin, City of Hope Trust Chief Executive Ken Taves, Santa Clarita Chamber of Commerce Leader Charlotte Taormina and Solar Servicing Center CEO, Zepyor Parseghian.
