Buncha liberals at the Harambee

My friends in Pasadena just went green with some solar panels.

PASADENA - Installing solar panels to cut back on energy costs was not particularly high on the list of priorities for Harambee Ministries.

Harambee is mainly concerned with keeping kids off the streets by providing them with a safe learning environment through after-school and summer programs.

But when the Leadership Pasadena Class of 2008 approached Harambee Executive Director Rodolpho Carrasco with the idea of "going green," Carrasco said the solar move was a lot more doable than he first thought.

After a $15,000 rebate from Pasadena Water & Power and another $15,500 in donations, the $33,000 project ended up costing Harambee just $2,500.

The solar panels being installed this week will decrease energy costs for the private nonprofit organization by 70 percent.
