Elkridge Maryland Based Solar Energy World, a locally owned and operated Solar System Design and Installation Company just completed installing a 199.64 kW, solar electricity system for Red Hawk LLC's facility in Rosedale Maryland. Red Hawk, founded in 2001, sells accessories, parts and reconditioned golf carts to retail dealers.

"We decided to go solar primarily because of the tax benefits. The pay back for us is 3.5 years and then we get free electricity for life. What a deal! So the financial decision was easy. In addition it is the right thing to do for the environment as well as providing some positive traction for our employees and our customers", stated Gillet Boyce, Red Hawk owner.
The 644 panel system is expected to produce 260,662kwh in the first year for Red Hawk which means based on their actual annual usage of 266,080kwh the solar system will offset approximately 98% of their consumption.
"We know that due to Maryland's increasing demand for solar energy, there has been an upsurge of out-of-state solar companies marketing to businesses and consumers in our market, so we are very happy that Red Hawk chose Solar Energy World to design and install their solar system rather than taking a chance on a solar retail chain. We feel it is important to help businesses in our own community get all the benefits solar power can deliver while providing them with the quality of service and responsiveness that only another locally owned company can give.", stated Geoff Mirkin, Vice President of Solar Energy World
