WNEP-TV’s Don Jacobs and Jackie Lewandoski host this quarter’s Power To Save Special.

SOLAR INNOVATIONS – Don Jacobs

There is a company in Pine Grove, Schuylkill County, that is making a difference on many fronts.  Don Jacobs takes us to Solar Innovations and gets a tour of their expansive campus.  Energy-efficient, custom-engineered and American-made glass products are only the tip of the company iceberg!    Here, they are everything conservation.  Solar Innovations has more to share when it comes to the best ways to use and re-use – that’s still ahead on this Power To Save Special!  Click Here to view this feature.

GLASS, FISH, PINEAPPLES ARE ALL TIED TOGETHER AT THIS COMPANY – Don Jacobs

Solar Innovations takes conservation and recycling up several notches.  See how they generate their own power, grow food and raise tilapia.  Innovation is the name of the game.  The fish provide nutrients to the plants, the sun and greenhouses work together to offer a wide range of benefits:  have you seen pineapples and bananas in February around here lately??  You will at Solar Innovations, Pine Grove.  Click Here to view this feature.

 

CABOT’s MOLU RETURNS!  DO NOT BE AFRAID!!! – Jackie Lewandoski

What is a MOLU???  Cabot Oil and Gas Corporation brings back the Mobile Offshore Learning Unit to the northern tier.  The mobile lab was so popular last year, Cabot made it available again to schools in Susquehanna County.  The lab is a hands-on experience with multiple activities in a wide variety of STEM principles.  Students got a chance to put the textbook to work.  Click Here to view this feature.

VOLUNTEERS NEEDED:  REPAIRING THE ICE JAM’S DAMAGE – Don Jacobs/Jackie Lewandoski

When ice jams piled up in Luzerne County and caused flooding and damage, it also took out the work of volunteers at the Nesbitt Park Recreation Area.  Not only is it a boat launch for Suskie Bassmasters, it also serves as the venue for the annual Earth Day activities for school children and families.  Join Christian Ostrowski and Robert Hughes to survey the damage and see the huge chunks of ice that are still there.  They have a lot of cleanup and revamping to do – and they already have a day set to begin.  If you can lend a hand, join them on April 7th.  For information on this cleanup and others in your county, check out the Great American Cleanup of PA website HereClick Here to view this feature.
