If there's any place that understands the impacts of climate change first-hand, it's the Katrina-flooded Lower 9th Ward of New Orleans. With the help of a new solar tracking system, a 9th Ward community center and skate park is taking a very visible step toward addressing the global environmental challenge.

"The solar tracker provides the park affordable, clean energy. Lower power bills help keep the park sustainable for the entire community," said Pierre Moses, Make It Right Solar's program director.
