Waste Pro’s Solar & Green Initiative Factsheet March 11, 2010 Innovative Solar Roof System Advanced Solar System Capabilities: Flat Flexlight photovoltaic modules are flexible and fully adhere to the roof surface Flexlight is the only photovoltaic product that passed Miami-Dade notice of acceptance with wind tunnel testing for up to 148 mph wind. The innovative system is extremely light sensitive and designed to produce energy even in low light, including a full moon. The photo voltaic (PV) modules are warranted to stay adhered for 20 years. It is the only PV product made from amorphous ‘Triple Junction’ silicon for less diminished production in Florida’s high heat and more production in low light levels. Flexlight has ‘by-pass diodes’ every 8% of the module surface instead of the industry standard of 30% enabling more efficient energy production. It provides over 15% more energy than standard crystalline of the same wattage. Roof & Power Specifications: Waste Pro’s 25 kW solar power plant covers 5,000 sq. ft. of roof area. It provides 120 kW hours of electricity per day, enough to cover most of the building’s needs. Energy not consumed will be sent back to the utility grid for credit. Return on Investment: Within 18 to 24 months based on a Florida solar rebate, a federal energy tax credit, and annual depreciation. Project Partner Waste Pro partnered with EcoTechnologies Inc. headquartered in Sarasota. This full-service, green building company provides advanced solar technology including the Flexlight Photo Voltaic modules. It also provides a wide range of energy, water, indoor air quality and environmental performance products and services for residential, business and institutional applications. EcoTechnologies is located at 2101 47th Street, Sarasota 34234. Telephone: 941-364-5900, www.ecotechnousa.com. Additional ‘Green’ Initiatives Waste Pro has already implemented a ‘Blue Sky-Green Earth’ policy with other initiatives for ‘green’ management: The company is working to have the solar-powered building itself certified as ‘green’. Waste Pro is one of the first garbage companies in the country to use hybrid electric/fuel waste hauling trucks. Trucks include an advanced oil purification system that cuts oil changes to save oil and reduce the firm’s carbon footprint.
