Spire Corporation (Nasdaq: SPIR), a global solar company providing capital equipment and turn-key manufacturing lines to produce photovoltaic (PV) modules, announced that it kicked-off its efforts to give back to both the community and the environment last Friday, Earth Day, by planting a golden forsythia on the Minuteman Bikeway, a branch of the Rails-to-Trails Conservancy. The plant symbolizes Spire’s monthly commitment to cleaning up the litter and excess debris from the trail.

Little, Chairman and CEO of Spire Corporation. “Being a solar company and a part of the green movement, as a team, we felt the importance to preserve the environment right in our backyard.”
