Exciting news for Friendship Trays as they went solar this week. Hope you enjoy the video from the unveil as well as the article from The Charlotte Observer.
Friendship Trays, Charlotte’s meals-on-wheels program, today celebrated the installation of new rooftop solar panels and high-efficiency lighting – the gift of several local renewable-energy companies.
Tecta-America Carolinas, SBM Solar, Calor Energy Consulting and Southpoint Solutions teamed up to install the 10-kilowatt system and energy-saving lighting.
Dale Carroll, deputy secretary of the N.C. Department of Commerce, was among officials from Raleigh and Mecklenburg County who attended this morning’s ribbon-cutting.
The companies used part of a $250,000 N.C. Green Business Fund grant to SBM Solar, which makes photovoltaic panels near Charlotte, to pay for the solar installation.
