Here are a few photos for a sneak peek at the progress of our Santa Goes Solar display! A giant mahalo to Hawaii Energy and the Hawai‘i Wal-Mart stores for their generous support to help us build the display. It's not too late to donate!
To show Honolulu the power of clean energy, we're joining forces with the Lego Enthusiasts Association of Hawaii (LEAHI), Sunetric, and members of the UH Solar Decathlon team to build a brilliant holiday exhibit--entirely solar-powered--that will be on display at the 2011 Honolulu City Lights.
The LEAHI (Lego Enthusiasts Association of Hawaii) team will construct a workshop where Santa's elves can assemble their toys without using a drop of oil. Our Christmas trees will be lit with a dazzling array of high-tech LED lights engineered by members of UH's Solar Decathlon Team Hawaii and decorated with recycled incandescent bulb ornaments made by students from local schools. Sunetric's PV panels will harness the energy of the sun to power the display.
You'll have a chance to check it out on the lawn adjacent to Honolulu Hale from Dec. 2 through Dec. 31 at the 2011 Honolulu City Lights display.
