Our home office is 100% wind-powered, and as of April 2013, includes geothermal heating and cooling! Our website, www.RockvilleLiving.com, allows people and businesses to share information with the community that promotes environmentally conscious living.
As a solar energy company, environmental concern is of great importance to Standard Solar. Since our founding in 2004, we have installed over 750 solar electric systems including a 701 kilowatt array in Rockville; the second largest in the state of Maryland.
We have a comprehensive recycling program in our Rockville headquarters and we frequently engage in speaking opportunities around the area to educate our neighbors of the benefit and importance of green living.
In 2009 HFH-MC purchased 57 wind power renewable energy credits (REC) through our partnership with Clean Currents. For every unit of renewable electricity generated an equivalent amount of RECs were produced. Our purchase of RECs supported renewable electricity generation which helped reduce conventional electricity generation. HFH-MC was able to offset air emissions such as Carbon Dioxide (a major greenhouse gas that causes global warming), Sulfur Dioxide and Nitrogen Oxides (toxic gases that cause acid rain), and Ozone and particulate matter (pollutants that aggravate respiratory symptoms like asthma). Our organization will continue to find new and interesting ways to become a green organization and we look forward to sharing them with you.
