Gayler give $19,634 to Rotary International
George and Darlene Gayler of Gayler Construction in Danville spearheaded a Community Solar Program, which led to discounted solar pricing for residents and 903.4 kilowatts being removed from the grid. It also generated $19,634 in referral fees from SolarCity, the company who did the solar installation. The Gaylers designated this money to go to Rotary International - earmarked for San Ramon Valley Unified School District and Rotary's international programs for clean water and child vaccinations.
The Gaylers started the community solar program as a way of giving back to the community they live and work in, hoping to positively affect both the environment and people's lives.
"This program was doubling rewarding," said Darlene Gayler. "Not only were we able to take a lot of energy off the grid, but we are also able to make a significant donation to causes we strongly support."
The Gaylers were nominated for the Danville Chamber's Business Person of the Year, acknowledging the company's community service philosophy.
