We’ve had an interest in clean energy and energy efficiency since the mid 1970’s, when we first penned sketches of solar PV systems, wind turbines and energy efficient products to help reduce the nation’s dependence on foreign oil. Since that time, we’ve done what we could to save energy and money at our residences and businesses with energy efficient improvements and energy saving measures, and as of 2009…we added clean renewable energy from solar PV and wind. Due to the passage of Michigan’s renewable portfolio standard (RPS) the utilities came on board with great programs for renewable energy, and thus, Sunventrix joined on and now receives 100% of electricity from two clean solar energy systems – one roof mounted and one ground mounted. We also follow energy efficient measures at our business where we’ve implemented a majority of Energy Star recommended improvements and practices to prevent air leakage, improve insulation, use high efficiency lighting, use Energy Star appliances, monitor electricity consumption, seal ducting, and conserve water (to name a few) to save energy and reduce our carbon footprint. Thus, as a strong believer in the benefits of solar, Sunventrix installs innovative solar PV systems for residences and businesses so that others may obtain the same savings and benefits of clean renewable solar energy that we receive. Have a sunny day!
Times are tough right now for Michigan and US families. We’re an Ann Arbor / Saline Michigan solar installer sourcing Michigan and US components for our installations to help keep jobs here and employ US workers. We’ve partnered with some innovative Michigan companies that manufacture and supply the racking that holds the solar panels and who have employees that spend their dollars locally in the Michigan economy. We’re using solar panels that meet the ARRA (American Recovery and Reinvestment Act) requirements for domestic content and manufacture and that meet our standards for performance and quality. And we’re using local and US distributors that have employees in the US and support us with top notch sales and service. Thus, when you work with Sunventrix, you’re helping support Michigan and US jobs, innovation, and manufacturing. We think these things are important, and we hope you do too.
