The Children’s Home is known for its commitment to enhancing the health and welfare of at-risk youth throughout the state of New Jersey. This mission is continued by installing a new solar energy system on our beautiful main campus in Mount Holly, NJ.
Every kilowatt-hour of electricity produced by this new solar array becomes a valuable source of electricity, which in turn reduces operating costs, pollution, and strengthens the long-term viability of the organization. Project development and coordination was provided by John P. Fish. The new solar energy system will be installed by Solular LLC.
Solular is a turnkey engineering, procurement, and construction firm with over 25 years of combined senior-level experience in solar electric generation (photovoltaics or PV) and support infrastructures. Their projects span the east coast and come in every size, from small commercial to utility scale applications, as well as residential.
Solular provides the highest quality of service throughout all the necessary steps for the installation, integration, and commissioning of solar electric systems, including the areas of electrical, mechanical, and civil engineering, energy regulation and production, finance, product procurement, and commercial construction. Their projects range from rooftop arrays, serving our municipal, commercial, and non-profit customers; to solar fields deployed over hundreds of acres, serving major metropolitan areas.
Solular's comprehensive conception-to-completion process enables limitless options through one point of contact. This makes access to the solar energy revolution seamless and profitable.
Their office is located at 20 Stow Road, Suite #2 in Marlton, New Jersey. Additional offices are located in Pennsylvania at 446 Lancaster Ave in Malvern, PA.
“This practical energy alternative will save approximately $40,000 in electrical savings annually and is estimated to produce enough solar electricity to power our entire campus” Executive Director Roy Leitstein said. The money saved will go towards increasing access to The Children’s Home's services, and aiding our vision of being a leading community resource in evidence-based best practice human services in New Jersey.
Aside from a projected savings the system produces zero pollution, and offsets the agency’s carbon footprint. The installation of the solar panel system promotes societal well-being by protecting the environment from carbon emissions, and health problems associated with pollution. The Children’s Home is excited about the new addition to their historic campus, and the benefits it will produce not only for their organization, but the surrounding Mount Holly community as well.

Sincere thanks to all of the sponsors and attendees. We are so grateful for your support and hope you had an enjoyable evening.
The Children's Home held a Ribbon Cutting Ceremony to celebrate our recently renovated and remodeled living facility called "Tamayo Cottage."
Tamayo Cottage was officially rededicated and renamed afer Joseph Tamayo, one of our cutten staff members of over 29 years. Joe is a distinguished military veteran, serving our country for over 22 years, with two tours in the Vietnam War, two tours in Germany and five tours in the Korean War. Joe is also a former District Commander of the Veterans of Foreign Wars (VFW).
The former Dobbins Cottage had undergone an extensive $800,000 facelife, utilizing energy efficient heating and cooling technologies, appliances, and state-of-the art materials, while maintaining its historic 20th century charm, matching the rest of our expansive campus.
The ceremony took place on Wednesday, June 13, 2012 at 4pm on our main campus, located in historic Mount Holly, NJ.
"Undeniable Greatness" - The driving theme for our 1st Annual Youth Art Show and Silent Auction held on November 5th was well attended, despite the after effects of Hurricane Sandy. Over 60 Patrons were treated to dozens of pieces of artwork in several types of media created by our talented students.
Our artists raised $1,135.00 from sales of their original artwork and stationary.
The youth artists decided to split the proceeds with the Ronald McDonald House in Camden, NJ as a community service initiative.
