If companies are to take responsibility for their huge plastic waste footprints, they need to start investing in the search for cheaper, durable and truly sustainable alternatives. But how can this be achieved?
Major shifts - including new technology, rising oil prices and a changing climate - are encouraging investors to look to new energy sources. In 2020, power consumption and the industry as a whole is expected to grow significantly.
Even as fracking has reduced the cost of natural gas, improvements in renewable energy technologies have brought their costs down to be cost-competitive with fossil fuels. In many cases, they can compete even without tax incentives in place.
Eliminate Solar Rack Ballast and Reduce Rooftop Material Handling. PowerGrip™ Universal (PGU) is a commercial roof mount system designed to secure solar racks and other equipment to any type of commercial roofing system. PGU provides a secure connection directly to the roof deck or structural members and is designed to reduce or eliminate ballast in solar racking systems, so there's less weight on the roof and less material handling. Made of heavy-duty cast aluminum, PGU units include a base ring which is secured through the roofing cover and into the structural roof deck, and a waterproof top plate.
