Today’s GREEN ENERGY is CLEAN ENERGY

Green energy is generated from natural sources such as sunlight, wind, water, plants, algae, and geothermal heat. In contrast to fossil fuels, which continue to diminish over time, green energy is naturally replenished.

Green energy sources are readily available all over the country, including rural and remote areas. These renewable energy resources have far less negative impact on the environment than do fossil fuels that produce greenhouse gases and leave a carbon footprint – both of which affect our environment and contribute to climate change. Additionally, accessing fossil fuels typically requires mining or drilling into the earth, affecting wildlife habitat and migration patterns as well as impacting environmental aesthetics.

Advances in renewable energy technologies have lowered the cost of solar panels, wind turbines, and other sources of renewable energy, making it more accessible for millions of people as a source of fuel for electricity.

At Huron Valley Electric, we have focused on solar energy production. Solar power is typically produced using photovoltaic cells, which capture sunlight and turn it into electricity. Solar energy is also used to heat buildings and water, provide natural lighting, and cook food. HVE provides residential, commercial, and utility solar electric systems. Our specialty is turnkey solar installations from design to construction, with solar installers trained to provide top of the line solar installations for all of our customers.

Some recent solar installations completed by Huron Valley Electric include:

A3C, 210 EAST HURON ST, ANN ARBOR

  • 4 kilowatt system
  • Installation of photovoltaic arrays that utilize three different technologies
  • Power created can be tracked to assess and compare the performance of each technology
  • Utilizes a monitoring online “dashboard” that tracks and displays the photovoltaic system’s performance publicly
MAVD, 350 SOUTH MAIN ST, ANN ARBOR

  • 20 kilowatt system
  • 95 traditional multi-crystalline panels
  • Power generated by the array is sent through a bi-directional meter designed to allow crediting of the energy created on-site
