When you think of North Carolina you probably think of barbecue, sweet tea and ACC basketball. Now, it's time to add solar energy to the list! At our current pace, we will be ranked 4th in the US in solar energy by the end of 2013! While many sectors of the economy are struggling, clean energy is booming! In an effort to recognize the contributions of solar energy to North Carolina, Governor Pat McCrory has declared June 2013 Solar Energy Month!
Here are the words from the Governor himself:
"NOW, THEREFORE, I, PAT McCRORY, Governor of the State of North Carolina, do hereby proclaim June 2013 as “SOLAR ENERGY MONTH” in North Carolina, and commend its observance to all citizens."

Our industry, economy and state may be changing, but our values of family, community and goodwill will always remain the same. North Carolina is about barbecue, sweet tea, ACC basketball and solar energy!
