Spreading some sunshine
One Hawaii solar company is using social media to help spread the word about solar savings (from solar photovoltaic systems).
Honolulu-based RevoluSun has established a Solar Savers team that hangs out at local beaches and community events handing out free shirts, sunglasses and more to spread awareness about solar energy.
Here's how it works: People who meet the Solar Savers team take a photo and tag themselves and RevoluSun on Facebook. Those who agree to do so are entered in a drawing for a $50 American Express card in a monthly drawing.
The social media campaign started in July and runs through September.
RevoluSun will be at the beach fronting Hale Koa Hotel (2055 Kalia Rd.) from 9 a.m. to noon today (Saturday, Aug. 17) and at the 31st Annual Hawaiian Slack Key Guitar Festival at Kapiolani Park from 3 to 5 p.m. on Sunday.
