Winter Haven, FL (PRWEB) April 22, 2009
QuickBeam Energy is celebrating Earth Day this year with the announcement of a new solar Photovoltaic (PV) system installation at Weikert Ford on US Highway 27 in Lake Wales. The new system is a 25 kW solar PV system which will provide Weikert with clean electricity generated by the sun. "This installation represents a great way to celebrate Earth Day in the sunshine state" says QuickBeam Energy COO, Jim Grebey. "Solar PV systems are earth friendly, and provide a significant way to reduce the carbon footprint of commercial properties." Solar PV systems convert sunlight into electricity and reduce dependence on electricity created by fossil fuel generators. Progressive thinking businesses like Weikert Ford also recognize that these systems make tremendous business sense as well. With ever rising utility costs, solar PV systems mean lower utility bills as the cost of fossil fuels continues to rise and increased property value for their owners. Couple these savings with available state rebates and federal incentives, and this is just smart business. Florida's Public Service Commission has recently moved to adopt a rule requiring electrical utilities to buy power back from solar energy systems at the same rate the utilities sell power. This "net-metering" means that excess energy, generated by solar PV systems, can be sold back to the utilities during peak daylight hours, further reducing the effective cost of installing solar energy systems.
Earth Day is intended to inspire awareness and appreciation for the environment. QuickBeam Energy designs and installs solar energy systems. We work with owners of commercial properties and large residences in the State of Florida to design and install customized PV systems that will reduce their energy costs, increase the value of their property, and benefit the environment.
