The Genesis Green Team Needs Your Help!
We are looking for champions to provide funding mechanisms
for installing solar panels on our roofs to reduce our energy footprint.
We are considering many financial options, including crowd-funding.
Reducing our energy footprint will not only save utility operating expenses,
it will result in a greener planet and serve as power source during a natural disaster,
during which people may need to use our building as shelter.
