Advantage Laser Products Installs Cutting Edge Solyndra Solar Panel
System—Going Green While Saving Green
Advantage Laser Products is working on it goal to become energy neutral. Installation of a
Solyndra solar array at it's Atlanta MICR Toner Cartridge manufacturing plant is just the first
step in that process.
(PRWEB) February 19, 2010 -- Atlanta-based Advantage Laser Products, Inc. (ALP) continues its 22 year
commitment to environmentally-minded business practices with its biggest project to date. Beginning January 25,
2010, the flat, white roof of ALP will initiate its transformation from ordinary rooftop to sun-harnessing machine.
Complete with innovative solar panel technology, the state of the art system allows for both direct and indirect
sunlight to be harvested. And, thanks to a new federal grant and recent state tax incentives, this new plan not only
makes environmental sense, it makes business sense as well.
Designed by Empower Energy Technology, ALP’s 3-array state of the art solar panel system utilizes solar
modules (developed by California-based Solyndra, Inc.) which not only gather direct sunlight, but indirect light as
well. As Director of Clean Energy for Empower Energy explains, “Unlike conventional PV modules, Solyndra’s
cylindrical modules will capture both direct and reflected sunlight from the white surface of Advantage Laser
Product’s roof. These cylindrical modules, unlike typical flat-surfaced modules, are comprised of a series of
cylindrical tubes which are expertly spaced apart from one another, thereby maximizing sunlight absorption.”
This translates into enormous energy savings as ALP executive Marvin Masson comments, “Without any further
green modifications to our building (such as replacing fluorescent lights with LED lights [ALP’s next project), the
solar panel system will provide 70% of ALP’s energy, including our vast energy needs for cartridge
remanufacturing. Once the LED project is complete, ALP will be energy neutral—powering our entire building
with our roof.”
