On Saturday, July 16th, SunGreen Systems Co-Founders Rick Hsu and Benny Tse presented the keys of a new solar powered home to the Mamikonyan Tumanyan family; one of five homes built by the San Gabriel Valley Habitat for Humanity on Geneva St. in Glendale.

The dedication ceremony celebrated the completion of an over 2 year long development project that brought together a variety of stakeholders in the San Gabriel Valley and Glendale communities. Billed as the SGVHH's first "green community", the 3-bedroom, 1.5-bathroom units are expected to each save over $100 per month for the homeowners by generating clean electricity from a rooftop solar array.

The event featured speeches from Glendale Mayor Frank Quintero, State Senator Carol Liu, and Donald Goodman, President of the SGVHH Board of Directors, among others. Catering was provided by local businesses, and guests were welcome to enjoy walk-through tours of the newly completed homes.

"I am tremendously grateful to SunGreen Systems for their interest in and support of our first green build," said Sonja Yates, Director of SGVHH. "SunGreen's solar panels will create value and savings for the Habitat for Humanity homebuyers."

The event comes on the heels of SunGreen Systems' recently completed solar-electric system at the Glendale Department of Social Services, which is expected to produce the average annual equivalent electricity of what 45 similarly sized homes use in a year.
