CIR Electrical Construction Corp. is home to the first and only Deger Energie Solar Trackers with Maximum Light Detection (MLD) technology in the Greater Buffalo-Niagara region.  These systems have sensors that track sunlight and position their solar panels for optimal energy consumption.  By tracking and following the sun, these trackers are generating an additional 45% more energy any fixed array system, such as a roof mounted system. 

Teaming up with Pace Landscaping, CIR has planned to create two dwarf sunflower/ lilac beds around the solar trackers, while replacing the old picnic area with new stone work, landscaping, and seating. Hydro-seed will also be laid to accelerate the growth of the grass around the area. 

CIR's offices are located in Lackawanna where this innovative solar park is in its final stages of completion.  Conveniently, our solar park is just down the street from the 14 wind turbines positioned next to the windy shores of Lake Erie.  It's really quite amazing to look out and see solar and wind power working together harmoniously.   

A large portion of our energy needs at CIR are generated from our onsite solar facilities.  To date the two solar trackers have collectively produced 20 megawatts (mW) of electricity! Twenty megawatt is equal to twenty million watts which can power approximately 722 homes for one whole day!

HOW TO GREEN YOUR HOLIDAY DECOR
Make your own ornaments and decorations.  Once upon a time, decorating the home and tree was a family event, why not bring that back?  Go on a scavenger hunt with the kids and find items around the house and the yard that can be `recycled` into holiday ornaments.  It will provide hours of family fun, and when you use as many `found` objects as possible, you'll be teaching the kids how to reduce, reuse and recycle at the same time!

 

Think green when decorating for your holiday festivities by following these tips.
