During the month of May, Solar Optimum will donate proceeds for each residential solar system sold – with or without home battery storage – to California United Ways’ new statewide COVID-19 Relief Fund.

LOS ANGELES, CA, May 09, 2020 /Neptune100/ —

Helping California’s Most Vulnerable
Families and individuals across the state are experiencing financial hardship due to the mandatory stay-at-home order, which has caused nearly 4 million Californians to lose their job. In an attempt to support those who have been hit the hardest, United Ways of California has created a state-wide COVID-19 Relief Fund – an initiative Solar Optimum is actively supporting by donating proceeds of their May residential sales.

“This crisis is affecting everyone, and as a socially responsible company, we want to get involved in helping those who suffer the most in our community. We all need to do our part to help our neighbors get through these trying times,” said Rainier de Ocampo, Vice President of Marketing at Solar Optimum. The best way to do so is to support and donate to a recognized organization like United Ways.”

Cutting to the chase
The state of California has put a list of proactive initiatives in place that have helped flatten the curve, including mandated face coverings and access to testing. Solar Optimum is taking the progress a step further by supporting their fellow Californians with financial aid. After carefully vetting a number of philanthropic organizations and local charities, the California solar company chose to donate to United Ways, who just established a local COVID-19 Relief Fund. For Solar Optimum, it was crucial that their donation would be well spent. They selected United Ways because of their hands-on approach:

“California United Ways are doing their part to help working families experiencing the loss of income due to quarantine or shelter in place orders, sensitive families and children affected by closures of schools and child care centers, seniors who have limited ability to access food and medical prescriptions, and others affected by this crisis,” said Peter Manzo, President and CEO of United Ways of California.

Join Solar Optimum in supporting those in need
If you are considering purchasing a solar system for your home, you can take part in supporting California United Ways by purchasing your system through Solar Optimum during the month of May.
