Clean Energy Advisors is lighting up cell phones at concerts of Dead & Company (the band includes members of the Grateful Dead) around the country this summer. The concerts are context for a lot of good.

Chris Warren, CEO of Clean Energy Advisors, our sponsor, explains, “The CEA Solar Tour is currently touring the country in support of the Dead & Company’s Participation Row. Working with the band, (a non-partisan voter registration organization) and Reverb (a non-profit organization that works to make tours and events more environmentally friendly) we are providing cell phone charging stations at every show an powering Participation Row. Participation Row is an area where local non-profits from each community are given an opportunity to come out and share their message with fans.”

The effort is proving to have tremendous reach. “During the tour we will educate and inform tens of thousands of concert goers about climate change and what each person can do to make a positive impact. In addition, approximately 15,000 fans will take actions on Participation Row that directly benefit our non-profit partners, Chris says.

“We are about halfway through the summer and so far the excitement and engagement has far exceeded our expectations. We are seeing some amazing things out there and raising awareness and money for good causes as diverse as environmental action and music education,” he concludes.

On Thursday, July 14, 2016 at 5:00 Eastern, Chris will join me here for a live discussion about the concert tour and the other work that Clean Energy Advisors is doing.
