H2Ocean, the worldwide leading manufacturer of All Natural Sea Salt Health Care products is ready to flip the switch on one of the largest rooftop solar installations in Martin County. The recent completion of the solar panel installation was first announced at the Business Development Board’s Annual Business Appreciation Awards Luncheon during H2Ocean acceptance of the 2012 Small Business of the Year Award.
H2Ocean’s Chief Executive Officer, Eddie Kolos, is passionate about preserving the environment and is excited that H2Ocean has positioned itself as being a leader in the green movement on the Treasure Coast. “H2Ocean continues to raise the bar in terms of business here in Martin County and with the addition of this solar rooftop project proves that local companies do care about preserving our environment as well.” said Tim Dougher, Executive Director, Business Development Board of Martin County.
With funds from Florida Power & Light and the State of Florida Solar Energy System Incentives program, the 98 panel photovoltaic system is designed to supply a majority of the company’s energy usage measured in kilowatts a year. The incentives available today make solar a smart environmental choice, but also a sound business decision. Solar power not only reduces operating costs and is practically maintenance free, it is also reliable and a good return on investment. Having a solar power system installed is the equivalent to prepaying for almost 40 years of energy, at a fraction of what businesses currently pay for electricity. Once installed, solar power systems will require little or no maintenance at all, especially if there are no batteries being used. Most systems will provide electricity quietly and cleanly for 25 to 40 years. Government incentives and the decrease of solar equipment costs mean the utilization of solar power is a wise investment and a good financial decision for public agencies and businesses.
