New York NY (SPX) Jul 25, 2008
Clear Skies Solar has announced the successful installation of the Hawthorne Machinery solar energy system at the company's 25-acre headquarters in Rancho Bernardo, CA.

For this $1,276,684 project, Clear Skies Solar installed a 155.39 kw DC solar photovoltaic (PV) system designed to offset current energy usage charges incurred by Hawthorne's headquarters. Following the initial engineering and permitting periods, total installation time was a mere five weeks.

Through a reduction in energy cost and government incentives, Hawthorne is expected to recoup its initial investment in approximately seven years.

Ezra Green, Chief Executive Officer and Chairman of Clear Skies Solar. "Anytime you have the opportunity to work with a quality organization such as Hawthorne CAT, you jump at the chance. Everything went like clockwork, and we couldn't be more pleased."

Clyde Marion, Director of Corporate Procurement of Hawthorne Machinery, stated, "We were very happy with the Clear Skies team and the work they performed. Their team was efficient and professional."

"This system's 758 Kyocera 205-watt panels will offset the electricity usage of approximately 77 average-sized American homes, making it a perfect example of implementing positive energy solutions in the real world," added Green. "Providing both cost savings and environmental benefits, it's truly a win-win scenario."
