SOLAR FOR SANTA? To show Honolulu the power of clean energy, we're joining forces with the Lego Enthusiasts Association of Hawaii (LEAHI) and members of the UH Solar Decathlon team to build a sparkling and innovative holiday exhibit—entirely solar-powered—that will be on display at the 2011 Honolulu City Lights.
The LEAHI team will construct a workshop where Santa's elves can assemble their toys without using a drop of oil. The workshop, village, and Santa's zero-emissions sleigh will be lit with a dazzling array of UH-engineered LED lights.
You'll have a chance to check it out on the lawn adjacent to Honolulu Hale throughout the 2011 Honolulu City Lights display beginning Saturday, Dec. 3.
To make this a reality, we need to raise about $4,000. Think about how good Santa's been to you over the years... Would you consider giving a donation to help bring solar power and energy security to the North Pole?
We'll be sure Santa keeps your name on the "NICE," not the "NAUGHTY" list. (For real, email us and we'll add your name or a NICE person of your choice to the list that will be part of our display!) Thanks for supporting Blue Planet in our efforts to end Hawaii's dependency on imported oil.
