Donna, Dolan and Dylan


May 13, 2011

Donna Levey was a foster mother until she adopted Dolan and Dylan, two special-needs children whose medical conditions “require at least three loads of laundry every day, seven days a week.”

GRID Alternatives installed a solar electric system on Donna's home and Donna saw a dramatic reduction in her utility bills.

"With our lower PG&E bill, we can afford to renew our membership to the California Academy of Sciences," said Donna. Donna said she remembers her parents taking her to the Academy of Sciences when she was Dolan and Dylan's age and is happy that she can now pass on those same experiences to her sons.

Donna said her family feels "so 21st Century" now that they are experiencing the benefits of this new technology and she is thankful to "all who worked and volunteered to provide our family with solar power."
