"Clean Footprint Prepares for Earth Day Sunseed Co-op Solar Install"

Solar development company, Clean Footprint, scheduled to begin a full solar install on Sunseed Food Co-op in Cape Canaveral just in time for Earth Day.

 Cape Canaveral, FL - April 18, 2013 - Cape Canaveral-based solar development company, Clean Footprint, prepares to kick off Earth Day this year with the install of a full solar array on the roof of Sunseed Food Co-op, a local grocery store specializing in organic nutrition and environmentally benign food products.   Sunseed Co-op will also be hosting an Earth Day celebration on April 22, 2013 from 12:00 PM - 7:00 PM, with a short "Electric Cord Cutting" ceremony to kick off the installation at 6:00 PM.  

The Sunseed Earth Day Celebration event will include live music, raffles, and vendor booths. The founders of Clean Footprint, including former Cape Canaveral mayor John Porter, and the Sunseed Co-Op management team will make brief announcements about the importance of sustainable alternative energy technologies. 
Sunseed's Director of Operations, Sean O'Hare says, "Sunseed Co-op is thrilled to take this giant step forward by bringing solar energy to our already unique business strategy, allowing us to promote environmentally clean energy as well as sustainable agriculture through selling organic products."
Catering to the needs of the health-conscious, Sunseed Food Co-op is a non-profit organization that provides healthy, organic, affordable alternatives to mainstream products found in other stores. With the coming addition of a full solar array, Sunseed will be able to include reducing its carbon footprint to its list of societal benefits. 
Over a 20-year period, the carbon offset achieved by the new solar array is equivalent to planting 7,417 trees, eliminating 673 barrels of oil, and removing 60 passenger vehicles from the road. The install, consisting of a 15.08 kW rooftop solar array, will begin later in the week following the celebration.

RBI Solar - Dahlia Has You Covered

What if you could maximize the Ground Coverage Ratio (GCR) on your next project and not have to worry about the complicated variables that come with a tracker system? With a low tilt and clearance design, Dahlia® has the highest GCR of any fixed-tilt system in the marketplace. The system is available in three tilt options (7.5, 10 and 12.5 degrees) and designed to accommodate any sized PV module. The lightweight system is engineered with fewer components, several of which are shipped to job sites pre-assembled. This design feature reduces freight costs and rapidly trims the amount of on-site installation time required to complete construction. Maximizing PV coverage on a site can lead to an increase of production, which creates greater financial return for project owners. Over 100 MW of Dahlia® projects have been deployed across the United States, in regions of variable snow and wind loads. How much can Dahlia® cover and save you on your next project?
