Palm City, Fl., U.S.A. —Sol Inc. (Solar Outdoor Lighting), the world leader in Solar LED outdoor lighting donated solar powered sign lighting to the town of Chapman, Kansas. Sol’s donation supports Kansas State University’s project to rebuild Chapman following a devastating tornado in 2008. The efforts to rebuild the town were featured on ABC’s “Extreme Makeover: Home Edition” on January 25.

“After receiving a request from a group of volunteers from the University of Kansas, we felt compelled to assist the team’s efforts in rebuilding the community. The lights were initially requested for a landscaping element but the students felt the lights were more useful illuminating the entrance to the Town of Chapman.” said Michael Sonnenfeldt, chairman of Sol Inc. “We are providing an environmentally friendly lighting system to a community devastated by a recent tornado which will assist in their rebuilding efforts.”

“The “Extreme Makeover: Home Edition” in Chapman gave us the opportunity to help this community in need. We felt the best way to give back to the community was to not only design and build a useful and interesting element for the community but also to use the opportunity to demonstrate the importance of sustainable design,” said Tim Sherman, a Kansa State University Graduate student who initiated the project. “We used recycled materials and renewable energy in our project in order to minimize the amount of embodied energy and Sol is a company that made an important aspect of this project possible through their lighting system that runs completely on solar power!”

Sol’s most recent donation to Chapman, Kansas follows on the heels of other recent donations of solar powered lighting systems to the City of Port St. Lucie, Fl, communities devastated by Hurricane Katrina, and the 2007 earthquake victims in Peru. Sol looks forward to providing additional support to future Extreme Makeover Home Edition projects.

"Extreme Makeover: Home Edition," which has won back-to-back Emmy Awards as Best Reality Program (non-competitive), is entering its 6th season on ABC. The program is produced by Endemol USA, a division of Endemol Holding. Anthony Dominici is the executive producer; and David Goldberg is the president of Endemol USA.
