I interviewed Ty and he was a knowledgable and helpful person. He told me about his organization. He tours and instructs children from low-income and diverse student populations about renewable energy and environmental sustainability in our public school system. This is a socially responsible non profit and they deserve our support.

If this organization had 10 million bucks, it could...

Greatly expand it's educational mission. They could continue to expand public consciousness about the benefits of solar energy.

We were guided through all of the intricate details of how they refurbished the RV to be powered by solar energy, including insulating with old blue jeans! They are clearly passionate about what they do, and serious about imparting what they've learned and making it accessible to all, including kids. I have not gotten a look yet at their waffle cart, but I am pleased at this new venture they have created in order to bring in more funding. They are so creative!
