Solar Energy USA – Waco, TX Office Joins Greater Waco Chamber Of Commerce To Help Promote Sustainability And Efficiency Among Local Businesses

Businesses are constantly looking for ways to innovate.  One such method of innovation that has received much press lately is the decision to “go green,” which can have a number of different definitions.

At the Solar Energy USA office in Waco, TX, we define “going green” as making smarter, sustainable business choices throughout our day-to-day activities. Our home office in Atlanta, GA is powered completely by solar panels on the roof of the building and we have plans to make our Waco office 100% solar as well.

We are a solar company by trade, but we really consider ourselves stewards of the environment that educate businesses and consumers on ways to save money through energy efficiency. We get hundreds of messages from companies looking to learn more about going solar. But before we recommend a business go solar, we first take a look to see if there are any “low hanging fruit” which we can utilize to make the business more energy efficient.

One of the easiest ways to do so is by upgrading light fixtures. Business lighting represents between 45% and 50% of total power consumption. If we can first make the interior of a building more energy efficient and save some quick money on an electrical bill through new lights, the next step, going solar, will have a stronger return or more “bang for the buck.”

As a new member of the Waco Chamber Of Commerce we will interact with the Green Business Network to help educate businesses about the easiest way to gain energy efficiency – using our T5 Lighting Retrofit Technology. And, as always, we will leverage the efficiencies of our national distribution network to offer the most affordable solar solutions to both businesses and homeowners around Waco and throughout the great state of Texas.
