As Phase II of the Glen Rock NJ Dog Park creation commences, the Board of the Glen Rock NJ Dog Park non-profit is thrilled to announce a recent donation by Infinity Energy based in Pearl River, NY. Infinity Energy is donating a 10-panel solar electric system to the Glen Rock Dog Park. They will also install and interconnect the system and obtain the necessary state and local documents and permits on behalf of the non-profit. This generous donation is worth $13,240.
Infinity Energy’s Founder, Achilles Tzoulafis shares the reason for such a large donation to the neighboring NJ dog park, the only one in the world dedicated to the 9/11 Search and Rescue dogs. “Dogs are more than just pets or man's best friend, they are our most loyal companions. We are honored to donate solar panels to help pay tribute to the amazing animals that helped families whose family members were involved in the September 11th terrorist attacks. We can’t even begin to capture our gratitude to these brave animals that work to save lives by searching for survivors and locating the missing. This small gift is a great place to start. On behalf of our entire firm, we wish the Glen Rock Dog Park much success providing many years of “fetch” for man's best friend.”
Glen Rock Dog Park Founder Michelle Hillock adds, “We were so shocked by this kind and generous donation. My mom even started crying when she received the call. It was always our goal to make the park eco-friendly. This is such an amazing donation. The addition of the solar panels early on in Phase II helps us achieve our sustainability goals even faster. The panels will help generate power for our companion animal training classes, lighting for our flag and more. We hope to continue to be a model for other parks to emulate.”
The Glen Rock NJ Dog Park is completely privately funded. The park was opened and dedicated to the 9/11 Search and Rescue dogs on January 1, 2020. All donations to the dog park non-profit are tax-deductible.
