Alternate Energy Sources
May 31, 2012
Do any of your company’s facilities use alternate energy sources, such as solar panels or wind turbines?
They are not cost-effective.
Actually, as a small consulting business (ironic that I consult on renewable energy) operating in a suburb of a mid-western state, we are prohibited, due to local ordinances, from using solar panels or wind turbines on our property and/or our facilities. Solar panels and wind turbines are said to be 'environmentally and aesthetically unacceptable' in this area.
Some solar panels and sky lights. However they are only available due to governmental subsidies.
