Solar Celebration at Silo City

On Thursday, June 14, Let There Be Light International will be hosting a pro-solar event at Silo City that is going to be a heck of a lot of fun, while delivering a message that we need to support more solar projects in poverty stricken countries.

The event will feature food, Silo City tours, art, and music, with the amazing backdrop of the Buffalo River and the industrial silos. The event will be hosted at a “gorgeous new space” at Silo City, which is set to be unveiled at the site during Memorial Day Weekend (that’s all we can say for now). 

“More solar means less dirty, dangerous, and expensive kerosene, which equates to improved health, safety, and wellbeing. It also leads to enhanced economic stability and reduced carbon emissions.” – Let There Be Light International

The night will include: 

  • A colorful and cultural silent auction
  • Beer from Community Beer Works and wine 
  • African drum performances
  • Burundi dance performances
  • Authentic African appetizers prepared by chef Louise Sano of Global Villages

The event is in support of Let There Be Light International, an organization that fights “to combat energy poverty in vulnerable off-grid communities and to fight global climate change.” (Learn more) This effort aims to “bring solar electrification to the over 600 million people in Africa without any access to electricity.”

Sometimes the authors at Buffalo Rising work on collaborative efforts in order to cover various events and stories. These posts can not be attributed to one single author, as it is a combined effort. Often times a formation of a post gets started by one writer and passed along to one or more writers before completion. At times there are author attributions at the end of one of these posts. Other times, “Buffalo Rising” is simply offered up as the creator of the article. In either case, the writing is original to Buffalo Rising.
