Fresno-Area Sun, Real Goods Solar Powers Snowflake Designs


Clovis, CA (PRWEB) June 12, 2012

Twenty-five years ago when La Donna Snow was hand sewing gymnastics leotards from a small operation based out of her home, she installed a solar-powered hot-water heater on her rooftop. Today, La Donnas leotard manufacturing has been taken to new heights. Her energy-saving measures have, too.

Powered by the Fresno-area sun, La Donna Snows multi-million dollar operation, Snowflake Designs, is a wildly popular gymnastics leotard manufacturer based out of a 9,000-square-foot facility in Clovis, California. Solar panels by Real Goods Solar sit atop her facilities rooftops, helping her save at least $ 1,000 a month on her electric bill.

With the 2012 Summer Olympics quickly approaching, the energy savings are a big deal to Snowflake Designs. Business picks up around the summer Olympics as interest in the sport of gymnastics peaks around the summer games. That peak in interest equates to more girls and boys signing up for gymnastics, which means more leotards need to be produced for those eager gymnasts to wear.

The financial savings and environmental savings realized through solar go hand-in-hand for Snowflake Designs. The areas poor air quality is a major incentive behind La Donnas hybrid car and the business’s solar system. Shes doing her part to clean the air. She sees the savings in money as a bonus.

This area gets a lot of sun year round, but particularly during the summer months, said La Donna. It works out really well for us right now because our production is way up. Our solar panels are working overtime along with us. The savings in my energy bills are dramatic, but Im also very interested in making a difference environmentally.

As one of the largest and most popular leotard makers in the United States with kids in 150 gyms sporting her leotards, La Donna isnt shy about sharing the secret to her success.

I surround myself with wonderfully talented people, La Donna said, counting the Real Goods Solar team amongst her friends. Her home now boasts a Real Goods Solar system as well.

Having its product recently showcased in a Vogue photo shoot, the extremely talented Snowflake Designs team has been working hard to release its newest catalog.

The timing of the catalog release is impeccable.

On June 29th La Donna will be in San Jose, attending what is perhaps the mother of all gymnastics events in the United States. Anyone who is anyone in the American gymnastics field will be at the annual USA Gymnastics National Congress and Trade Show, which will be held in conjunction with the 2012 U.S. Gymnastic Olympic Team Trials.

This will be a fantastic opportunity to really showcase our leotards and generate new business, La Donna said of her impending trip to San Jose, California. Its the ultimate meet and greet for Snowflake Designs.

And as La Donna shakes hands and rubs elbows with the whos who of gymnastics, her Real Goods Solar systems will be holding down the fort back home, generating the power that ultimately will dress the Olympians of tomorrow.
