California Gov. Jerry Brown and U.S. Representative Nancy Pelosi on June 16, were just a few of the Democratic leaders dedicating a new state-of-the art, green headquarters to California Democratic Party chair John Burton. The John L. Burton Democratic Headquarters is the refurbished Wishing Well Building on S and 9th Streets in Sacramento.
Aztec Solar was fortunate enough to install the solar for this momentous headquarters.
Specifically, Aztec had the honor of “installing the 7.5 kW DC rooftop solar system that will offset 10,563 kWh, at a savings of $1161.93 dollars, and 8 tons of the greenhouse gas carbon dioxide (CO2) per year.”
Jonathan Gemma, Vice President of Sales and Marketing:
“We were honored to help the Democratic Headquarters become energy efficient and are pleased that solar is becoming more prevalent on buildings in the Sacramento region.”
According to Examiner.com, Burton is “known within the Party as the fiercest advocate for working and poor families, for the elderly, the disabled and the disadvantaged.”
The Examiner continues, “The state of the art facility will be more welcoming to clubs, groups, and activists whose values are supported by the Party to give them the tools, training and facilitation for communication and outreach; including predictive-dialer phone banks and meeting space, as well as outdoor space for fundraisers and receptions.”
