LIEUTENANT GENERAL RUSSEL HONORE’ LEADS VETERANS ON ENVIRONMENTAL CRUSADE

The Former Hurricane Katrina Task Force Commander mobilizes a renewable energy mission

(New Orleans – Nov. 1, 2016) Lieutenant General Russel Honore’, the former hard-charging General and Hurricane Katrina Task Force Commander is now on a new crusade: an environmental one. Together with the members of the Alfred E. Flynn VFW Hall in New Orleans and PosiGen Solar Solutions, Lt. Gen. Honore’ introduced a new outreach plan today to educate veterans about renewable energy and help them control their energy costs.

“In the spirit of Veterans Day and veterans month, we are happy to be recognizing our veterans with this great opportunity,” Lt. Gen. Honore’ said. “Our veterans deserve the benefits of renewable energy, and solar is a wonderful way to not only be good to our planet, but also save money.”

The renewable energy outreach being provided by PosiGen Solar includes education, energy efficiency upgrades and special pricing during the month of November, with added incentives for veterans and active-duty military personnel. In addition to special pricing, veterans and military personnel will also receive a $100 giftcard.

PosiGen will also make a $100 donation to the building fund of the Alfred E. Flynn VFW Hall for every new veteran homeowner who signs up, as the VFW membership works to rebuild New Orleans only remaining VFW Hall. While most VFW Halls are experiencing a decline in membership, Post 8973 is proud to be one of the fastest growing VFW Halls in the country. Once 30 veteran homeowners have gone solar, PosiGen will donate a 6 kw solar panel system to the VFW Hall, located on Lyons Street Uptown.

Doug Thomas, Commander of VFW Hall Post 8973 says he is excited about the partnership and the benefits it will provide to the VFW and the membership.  “When our members save money through programs like the one PosiGen Solar is offering, we can then use those savings to help other veterans even more through additional programs and outreach.”  

PosiGen is proud to honor our veterans this month with this special program. Beth Galante, PosiGen Vice President of Business Development & Government Relations said, “Many of our veterans are on fixed incomes and would greatly benefit from PosiGen’s solar savings and energy efficiency upgrades. We want to do everything we can to show our respect and appreciation to the men and women who fight for our freedoms. As the nation honors its veterans this month, we are happy to be partnering with Lt. Gen. Honore’ and the New Orleans VFW Hall to help veterans lower their monthly energy bills.”
