Newark, DE, U.S.A. – December 19, 2011 Motech Americas LLC, a Delaware solar company with a 20 year heritage of manufacturing quality solar products, is pleased to have the opportunity to donate U.S. manufactured solar panels to Extreme Makeover: Home Edition so that another family can enjoy the wonderful long term benefits of solar. This will be the second time in the past few months that MOTECH has donated solar panels to Extreme Makeover: Home Edition.
"During these difficult economical times, it is more important than ever to do what we can to be generous. Motech Americas’ donation is a complete 5kW solar system including a MOTECH high efficiency inverter to help reduce the electricity costs for this family. In collaboration with SunReports, we are also
donating a monitoring system to engage viewers of the show, who will be able to see how much power the system produces in a simple, web-based display," said Derick Botha, VP of Motech Module Sales and Marketing. "I cannot think of anything more appropriate during the holiday season than to give a gift that will continue to give for over 25 years."
A 5kW system can generate up to 7MWh per year. That is enough power to light up ~70,000 100W light bulbs for an hour! How much the family will save will depend on how much electricity they consume yearly, but systems of this size have been known to be able to cut electricity bills in half and in some cases have reduced electricity bills to $0.
Quality solar panels have been manufactured in Delaware for the past 20 years and MOTECH is continuing this heritage at its Delaware facility. Understanding the importance of experience in this industry, MOTECH has made the Delaware facility its center for Solar Module Excellence, where panels are designed and global manufacturing quality is maintained. “We have great confidence that the system donated will bring joy and benefits to this family for over 25 years,” commented John Colarusso, Engineering Manager of Solar Modules, Global. “These panels will carry the engineering and manufacturing pride of our company, and each is made to be second to none.”
