How do orphans in Africa, a local grocery store and the power of the sun relate?
The answer is with Oregon Dairy’s new PV solar system which was officially turned on and generating power as of March 31, 2011.
“How do the orphans play into this story?” you might ask.
Horizon Energy, LLC, a non-profit organization in Lancaster PA, was the lead developer on the solar project. Horizon Energy is an energy services and solar development company, formed by a group of venture capitalists with a big heart for orphans. Their profits go directly towards developing micro communities in Africa; the communities generally consist of an orphanage, school, farm, medical clinic and in some cases micro businesses. Horizon Energy partners with local individuals to aid the community in becoming economically self sufficient. Board Chairman & CEO Daryl Heller comments, “We are Venture Capitalists generating wealth to empower the poor.”
Horizon Energy, LLC hired Ephrata based company MVE Solar to design and install the solar system at Oregon Dairy.
Oregon Dairy is a family friendly supermarket, restaurant, gift shoppe and bakery – all on a real working Lancaster County PA farm. They are committed to exploring and utilizing all forms of renewable energy which make sense to them, the community and the world.
