A group of employees at SunPower Corp., a San Jose, Calif.-headquartered manufacturer of solar cells and panels, has volunteered to spend the day finalizing two of Habitat for Humanity's homes located on Murphy Avenue in San Jose.
According to SunPower, the volunteers will assist with painting and landscaping to get the homes ready for their new occupants. This project is the largest group of houses completed to date by the Silicon Valley Habitat for Humanity. Partner families have been chosen to occupy these residences and have completed in excess of 500 hours each in building these homes, the company adds.
‘SunPower has experienced significant growth since its move to San Jose earlier this year, and now it's time to step into a leadership role and give back to the community,’ says Tom Werner, SunPower's chief executive officer. ‘With housing prices continuing to skyrocket, it's very rewarding to help these families realize their dream of owning their own home.’
