In an effort to lower our use of fossil fuels, reduce our "carbon footprint", and help in the effort to slow global warming, SunSetter Products has installed 616
solar panels on the roof of our manufacturing facilities in Malden, Massachusetts.
Each panel is 16.5 square feet, so the roof now has over 10,000 square feet of solar collection capability.
Produces a Third of our Electrical Needs, Plus...
These photovoltaic collectors, made here in Massachusetts, generate over 138,000 KWH (kilowatt hours) annually,
which is about 35% of SunSetter's annual electrical need. On holidays and weekends, when our manufacturing
facilities are closed, the panels continue to operate and return
their electrical generation back to the national grid.
You can be proud, as a SunSetter Owner, that your awning was manufactured with help from the sun, with environmentally beneficial technology, and our
common desire to help protect the planet. To see how SunSetter Awnings can help you save energy,
Lighting Upgrade Saves 18% in Electricity Costs -- and Save You Money, Too.
SunSetter upgraded its lighting fixtures to a more energy efficient system, which reduced by 18% our electricity
All of our efforts to save energy directly benefit you, because they help us to keep our manufacturing costs down, which, in turn, helps keep the costs of our awnings
down. We pass our savings directly on to you in the form of savings on SunSetter Products.
