A solar farm built for the homeless has made it to the White House, where President Donald Trump and First Lady Melania Trump have been living since they moved in a temporary shelter from the cold in Palm Beach, Florida.
The $150 million solar farm, called Solarium, is expected to generate 1,000 megawatts of energy, or enough to power nearly 3,000 homes, according to Solarium CEO Chris Harkins.
Solarium is a small nonprofit that operates on a shoestring budget, but the nonprofit’s founder and CEO, Chris Haverlsey, has already raised $5.6 million from more than 700 investors.
Haverlley says the solar farm is a way to make the homeless financially independent from the system of shelters and government assistance that have been put in place to assist the homeless.
Solarium has installed the solar array at the White Houses Residence Inn and is also working to make it permanent.
The solar farm will be one of a handful of temporary housing projects in Florida, and the president’s decision to build a solar farm was part of a larger effort to create a more sustainable and inclusive economy.
President Donald Trump says solar energy is a job creator, and he plans to spend $1 trillion over the next decade to help people find work.
Harkins says the company plans to build 10 solar farms around the world in coming years, including in the U.S.
The White House’s solar farm project is part of an effort to help the homeless, which includes solar farms and other renewable energy projects.
Solaris solar farm in Palm Beaches, Fla., was one of more than 1,200 solar panels installed in Florida during the 2016 Presidential campaign.
Haven’t had a solar system installed in a long time, but Haverling says it was something that came naturally to him and his family.
Solar, he says, was a part of the plan.
Hamerlsey says the project is a great example of how we can create an economy that’s sustainable and fair and that’s not reliant on the wealthy to be a part in that.
The money that was raised will be used to build solar farms, and they’re all going to be solar farms.
Hayerlsey hopes to build at least 10 solar power projects around the country over the coming year.
He says the money will also be used for more permanent housing projects.
The nonprofit, founded in 2011, was created to provide solar panels for people who are homeless.
It currently has solar panels in more than 40 states, and in Florida it’s in the works to build more.
Hayerslsey is not the only one trying to make a difference in the homeless community.
Solar Power USA, a nonprofit group, launched a program in 2016 that was designed to help homeless people find jobs and pay their rent.
The program was called Solar Power for the Homeless.
