Camp staff are hard at work preparing for the first session that starts just next week, and they are already noticing a big change: it's quiet.
This season marks the debut of CJH's latest investment: a model year 2011 generator with modern emissions control, fuel economy, and noise reduction technologies.
The difference is striking. It now takes just 1 gallon of fuel per hour to run camp - about half of what we needed before. This will save as much as a ton and a half of CO2 from being released into the atmosphere.
This would not have been possible without generous donations from our supporters. To everyone who pitched in, helping us save money and reduce our environmental impact, THANK YOU! Camp supporters helped us raise more than $14,000 to help us go green. Special thanks are due to Ken Monroe and Holt of California, who went out of their way to help us find the right equipment and offered a generous $5,000 price reduction in support of CJH.
The new generator couldn't be happier in its new home, and we are just as thrilled to host it.
