Block Captain Recruitment Flyer

Thank you to the CEO of Imani Energy, for providing information about Solar power opportunities available through an innovative collaboration being presented to the community by the Central Baptist Community Development Corporation(CBCDC): Jeffrey Richardson provided valuable information about the benefits of solar energy, including the reduction in long term housing costs. The objective of the organization’s power pollution mitigation pilot is to install one 4kw solar power system for one Eastside resident and utilize this installation for community project-based education. This project is estimated to conclude in June of 2021. Please contact Mr. Richardson if you or someone you know is interested in the free solar power system. The guidelines for participation are listed below:

    • Agreeing to participate in required trainings and provide feedback to the community on how the solar/energy efficiency system has impacted your utility bill and any other insights for the duration of project.
