As a partner with the San Francisco Giants, Hanwah Solar, a Korean based global solar company, will launch its “I SUN SF” program that will add to the SF Giants dedication to sustainability in the Bay Area. The program includes:
-The installation of solar panels at AT&T Park
-A Hanwha Solar branded, sun-shaped LED sign above left field
-A fundraising program named “How Far Did It Fly?” to benefit Boys & Girls Clubs of San Francisco (BGCSF)
-Sponsorship of the Giants in-game recycling “Green Team.”
For every foot of every homerun this season, Hanwha’s “How Far Did It Fly?” program will donate $1 worth of solar panels to the Boys And Club of San Francisco’s Columbia Park Clubhouse located in the city’s Mission district.
This partnership will supports the Giant’s “Green Team” who helps pick up and recycle cans and bottles during the 7th inning stretch. The “Green Team” also helps educate fans on the importance of recycling.
Larry Baer, president and CEO of the San Francisco Giants states that “The Giants are committed to promoting sustainability and clean energy in our community. Partnering with Hanwha Solar will allow us to continue to make a positive impact in keeping our community green and reminding our fans about the importance of respecting the environment.”
Although the San Francisco Giants could have decided to partner with a more local company than Korea based Hanwha, the message they are delivering together is still a very positive and important one.
