Al mes en la casa de los Menjivar, donde viven 11 personas, se gasta alrededor de $125 dólares por consumo de energía eléctrica, pero en los próximos meses el recibo de la luz empezará a llegar tan bajo como los $20 dólares. La dramática reducción en el ‘bill' será gracias a los paneles solares que recientemente le instalaron de manera gratuita.

Top female executives and female job trainees from the Los Angeles Conservation Corps volunteered to install a solar power system for the Menjivar family, a family of 11 spanning three-generations residing in South Los Angeles. The Menjivar’s 4.16 kW solar system will result in approximately $1,360 in energy cost savings in the first year, and nearly $40,000 over its 30-year life.
