Generation company supports renewable energy

It is estimated that the time it takes a solar module to recover the amount of energy used for its manufacturing and transport is between 18 and 36 months. Since solar modules are warranted for a much longer service life than that, they truly do provide “free” energy in terms of the carbon footprint. In 30 years of operation, each kW of electricity generated by a solar electric system will offset approximately 40 tons of carbon dioxide emissions. That equates to approximately 120 t for a typical residential system and approximately 40 000 t for a 1 MW commercial scale solar system.  Diesel Electric Services believes that the generation of clean energy is a vital strategy in the effort to reverse global warming and is willing to partner with other companies to meet their project demands because of its dedication to advancing the alternative energy industry through better understanding of the design principles, greater focus on safety issues, commitment to the wellbeing of its employees, and the development of best practices for installation methods and materials.
