Alpine Earth Center to demonstrate solar power at Frisco BBQ Challenge

FRISCO – Alpine Earth Center of Silverthorne will set up a booth this weekend at the Frisco BBQ Challenge to promote solar education with demonstrations.

“We have toy cars that run from the sun and flowers that dance in the sun, hats with a fan attached to cool one off in the sun, a solar iPod charger, and many other fun ways to see solar technology work right in front of your face,” said Alpine Earth Center operation manager Kristen Breunig in an e-mail.

The booth’s proceeds will go to fund a solar hot-water system for the Summit County Community and Senior Center’s greenhouse project going on in Frisco. It’s currently funded by a grant from LiveWell Colorado, coordinated through Summit Preventive Alliance.  

“We hope to raise $1,000 to purchase the low-voltage pumping system and miscellaneous parts for the radiant heating,” Breunig said.
