Solar--Are Your Rerady?
Big Changes Are Coming To Our Industry. We're ready. Are you?
We can help you be ready. "Carbon footprint," "greenhouse emissions" and "global warming" are not just news stories. They are concerns that are driving change in electrical technology, revolutionizing our industry.
"Green" technology often translates into huge savings on electricity. Generating electricity from the sun is a technology we all know well. Whether you're powering a pocket calculator, satellite, or your home, solar electricity, also known as photovoltaics, can get the job done.
Give us a call today to see how we can help you be "green" and save money at the same time!
The cost of electricity is going up (both in dollars and in environmental and health impacts) and it doesn't show any signs of doing otherwise. About half of the energy in the American grid is coal generated. Electric energy is an intermediate form of energy. It is produced in thermal power stations (where fuel oil, gas, coal, biomass, etc. are burnt), in hydroelectric power stations and nuclear power stations. Smaller quantities are produced by wind, photovoltaic solar panels, sea tides, etc.
Did you know?
Enough sunlight falls on the earth's surface each minute to meet world energy demand for an entire year.
