Rooftop Solar actually protect and preserve the portion of the roof they cover, while shielding the structure from unwanted heat generation.
Annually: One 10kw Solar panel installation is estimated to generate 17000kwh and save 11.7 tons of CO2 -Solar panels work just fine in
ambient light and will produce significant energy in the fog or on overcast days. In fact, solar panels are actually more efficient at cooler
temperatures than hot ones.

LEDs use up to 80% less energy than traditional lighting. For example: The U.S. Department of Energy estimates
that rapid adoption of LED Lighting alone in the US, could avoid the construction of 40 new power plants by 2027
LEDs last more than up to 5 times longer than fluorescent lighting with 50,000hrs+ of lifespan, fixtures emit light
in a specific direction, are instant on and have no off-state power draw, provide a healthier and more natural usable
light per watt, are safer as they emit very little heat per watt by comparison to traditional lighting and fixtures feature
solid state technology which contain fewer parts, do not contain Mercury or Lead and are recyclable
