Awning Energy Savings

SunSetter Awnings Go Green
Your SunSetter awning and EasyShade solar screens are made with help from the Sun!

To lower our use of fossil fuels, reduce our carbon footprint, and do our part 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, giving our roof over 10,000 square feet of solar collection capability.

Produces a Third of our Electrical Needs

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 Products Owner, that your awning or EasyShade solar screen was manufactured with help from the sun, with environmentally beneficial technology, and our common desire to help protect the planet.

Lighting Upgrade Saves 18% in Electricity Costs — and Save You Money, Too.

SunSetter Products has worked to upgrade its lighting fixtures to a more energy efficient system, which reduced our electricity usage by 18%.

This upgrade along with all of our efforts to save energy directly benefit you— they help us keep manufacturing costs down, which helps keep the costs of our awnings and solar shades down. These savings are directly passed on to you in the form of savings on SunSetter Products.
