Conti Solar, a national solar engineering, procurement and construction (EPC), O&M and energy storage development company, announced that Conti Solar has donated approximately $40,000 worth of plywood to Habitat for Humanity (HFH) Restore, Fresno Branch. The donated plywood had formerly been utilized on Conti Solar’s rooftop solar project.
Habitat for Humanity ReStores are home improvement stores and donation centers that sell new and gently used furniture, appliances, home accessories, building materials and more to the public at a fraction of the retail price. The Habitat ReStores use proceeds to help bring strength, stability, self-reliance and shelter to local communities and around the world.
The Conti Solar Fresno branch also participated in Habitat for Humanity’s ‘Acts of Kindness’ project. This project works with local people to support neighborhood revitalization and restitution. The crew worked on painting the trim and different rooms of the community center, including the Veterans room - one day after Veteran’s Day. The Hinton Community Center is a gathering place for locals in Fresno named after Cecil C. Hinton.
“Fortunately, on the day I was there, one of the long-time volunteers who’s family lives in sub-standard conditions was awarded a house from the proceeds of Habitat ReStore’s Fresno Branch,” said Ryan Kemp, an Assistant Project Manager at Conti Solar.
