Habitat for Humanity House -- Marion, IL
In June, 2018, AES Solar held a hands-on training class in Marion where we donated and installed solar on a Habitat for Humanity home. This class was a part of the Future Energy Jobs act, an Illinois initiative to prepare for the booming solar job market as Illinois and the rest of the region shift towards more and more renewable energy sources each year. Aur also regularly teaches courses and trains new solar installers at John A. Logan college.
Gaia House Interfaith Center -- Carbondale, IL
In June 2018, as part of the celebration of their 19th anniversary, AES Solar donated and installed a solar system at Gaia House Interfaith Center in Carbondale, IL. The installation was part of a Hands-on Solar Installation course through John A. Logan College, and was performed by John A. Logan students and AES Solar staff.
WDBX -- Carbondale, IL
In 2016, an awesome collaboration came together to make this 22-module project happen for local radio station WDBX. AES Solar donated the labor and 1/3 of the cost, suppliers Werner, Quickmount & Ironridge donated or discounted 1/3, and WDBX listeners donated a 1/3 as well.
Aur is a long-time listener, supporter, and radio personality at Carbondale’s community radio station. At the time, AES Solar was celebrating 17 years in business, and this was their way of showing appreciation to the Carbondale community.
