    SUNation Energy To Install Solar System at National Training Center on Long Island

    SMITHTOWN, N.Y., June 24, 2024 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- SUNation Energy, the Long Island, New York-based subsidiary of Pineapple Energy (Pineapple), today announced that they will be installing a custom roof-mounted solar system on the National Training Center of the Guide Dog Foundation and America’s VetDogs, sister national nonprofit organizations, based in Smithtown, New York. The nonprofits breed, raise, train, and place highly trained assistance dogs with individuals with disabilities, free of charge.

    The solar installation is slated to reduce the nonprofits’ operating expenses, allowing more of their resources to go directly towards the services they provide. Guide Dog Foundation and America’s VetDogs both receive the highest ratings for financial stewardship and transparency from the leading charitable watchdog organizations. The nonprofits rely on contributions from generous individuals, corporations, service clubs, and foundations to fund its programs and services.

    “Nothing makes me prouder than connecting the dots between nonprofit and for-profit businesses,” Scott Maskin, Interim CEO of Pineapple CEO and Founder of SUNation said. “These groups are near and dear to my heart, as I act as a volunteer puppy raiser, helping to raise future assistance dogs. To think that my efforts will change the lives of people who are blind as well as veterans and first responders is so incredibly gratifying.”

    The project’s costs were significantly offset by a donation from Contract Pharmacal, a global manufacturer of pharmaceutical products, also based on Long Island. In addition to the support from Contract Pharmacal, the project is benefitting from federal Investment Recovery Act funding. Work is expected to begin in July 2024.

    “We are grateful to receive this generous donation from Contract Pharmacal and their dedicated team and also thank Scott at Pineapple for putting all the pieces together,” said John Miller, president and CEO of Guide Dog Foundation and America’s VetDogs. “The coordination of this effort considered the unique circumstances and needs of our staff and the activities at our training center. This state-of-the-art system will allow us to save money, which can be reinvested into advancing our mission and serving more people in the years ahead.”
