Stonehouse Signs Teams Up with Global NES to Prove You're Never Too Old to Go Green

Solar Energy News
WHEAT RIDGE, Colo., Jan. 20, 2011 /PRNewswire/ -- Stonehouse Signs was established in 1863 and has seen a lot of changes in energy use since their conception. There was not much of a carbon footprint for most people living in the days before automobiles and airplanes. The fifth generation family that successfully runs this company decided, with the help of Global NES, that they would make a difference by self-generating a substantial amount of the energy they use and showing others that they can do the same.

Stonehouse Signs energy needs were met when Global NES, Inc. proposed a 108kW PV (photovoltaic) system at their manufacturing facility in Arvada, Colorado. Global NES was able to complete the system construction in only 14 days, unheard of in the industry. This enabled Stonehouse Signs to meet the end of year deadline and leverage a key incentive in the current tax cycle.

In addition to providing Stonehouse Signs with much of their energy needs, this solar array will create a positive environmental impact by the reducing pollutants such as Sulphur Dioxide emissions by 9,149 pounds per year and Carbon Dioxide emissions by 5,258,000 pounds annually.

Stonehouse Signs manufactures and distributes a full line of safety signs, lockout tags, decals, screen printed signs, and full color digital printing. The company is unique in the fact that they produce signage with the techniques used 150 years ago as well as new-age digital technology that is rare in their industry.

Global NES is a large-scale renewable energy systems integration company headquartered in Colorado with field representatives throughout the US and abroad. What really sets Global NES apart from the competition is their 360 degree approach and "ONE SOURCE FOR ALL TECHNOLOGIES™" products and services offering. The Global NES approach is a complete turn-key energy solution incorporating energy reduction measures, a choice of technologies, applicable financial options, installation and subsequent system monitoring.

When Stonehouse Signs began it was during the second year of the Civil War. Do you think anyone back then could imagine that one day future generations of their family would still be running the company, let alone harnessing the sun for energy?
