Interactive Webcast IV - April 6 10-11AM Hawaii Time

ALOHA Tech Hui Community! Today we will be interacting with you through our newest webcast hosted by the Audio Visual Company. In the spirit of our Fundraiser Week we will be presenting Team Hawaii in a telethon-style. We will let you know how you can support us and get more involved as we get closer and closer to Washington, DC. Tune in to hear Hale Pilihonua's chant and learn about the meaning behind the name and the culture of our project. We also have many special releases that our student teams will be presenting during the hour that include our new design, motion tracking and lighting, photovoltaic systems, and possible recipes for our dinner party!

March 31 - April 6 is our Fundraiser Drive, we will be out and about in the community, promoting awareness and growing our network.

Join Team Hawaii for our next interactive webcast Wed. 03/09 10AM Hawaii time. In this interactive webcast Team Hawaii will take the opportunity to describe Hale Pilihonua's electrical systems and how photovoltaics will be used to create a net zero exchange. We have also invited our friends from Revolusun to explain the importance of photovoltaic systems for residential and commercial applications. Our host, The Audio Visual Company, will describe the result of their collaboration with Revolusun to be one of the first movers in Hawaii to install a photovoltaic array. Be prepared to learn a lot about how photovoltaics work and how they can benefit you or your business.
