In honor of the 50th anniversary of Earth Day, coming up on April 22, 2020, we’re spreading the word about MFS Engineers’ experience in renewable energy initiatives in both private and commercial construction.
You might have heard before that the sun transmits more solar energy to the earth in sixty (60) minutes than we use globally in an entire year. Radiation, in the form of sunlight, can be harnessed by photovoltaic (PV) cells grouped together to form what we commonly call solar panels. While many factors affect the efficiency of these solar arrays, the environmental advantages are seen by many researchers to outweigh the risks and the solar market has continuously grow in the past decade. According to the Solar Energy Industries Association (SEIA), solar PV accounted for 40% of all new electric generating capacity in the U.S. in 2019, totaling 13.3 gigawatts (GW) of new solar capacity.
MFS Engineers & Surveyors understands the benefits of renewables and has worked with developers and utility clients in designing and building solar PV array sites to bring clean energy to our communities.
