Thanks to everyone who came out to PGI's edition of Pittsburgh Green Drinks for Earth Day, and special thanks to our all of our sponsors!
PGI’s “Growing Solar from the Hill” community solar network - with support from The Heinz Endowments and the CITF grant from the Redevelopment Authority of Allegheny County - spawned the installation of three solar installations for non-profits that serve disadvantaged youth and neighborhoods.
All three sites were featured on the 2015 Pittsburgh Solar Tour and include: Schenley Heights Community Development Program in the Hill District, The Kingsley Association in Larimer, and The Fab Lab at the Carnegie Science Center on Pittsburgh's Northside.
Combined the three installations bring over 22kW in PV Solar power to these non-profit organizations.
Pittsburgh Green Innovators is in the process of executing a business plan to establish a green vehicle fleet at the EIC in an effort to improve connectivity within the five mile area surrounding the lower-hill.

PGI's CoWorkshop offers furnished desk space rates range from $300 to $425/month.
