Fisher’s Tudor House Solar power
As of January 20, 2016 our Solar panels have generated over 1,000,000 Kilowatt hours of Green Solar Power
We Generate, Reduce consumption, and Recycle.
Solar Power is clean, does not produce Greenhouse gases or any other byproduct. In January of 2011 we installed a Solar array of 868 Solar Panels. They generate green power, no emissions, no impact on the environment. With an 81,000 square foot facility, we would leave a pretty big Carbon foot print in Bucks County. It was our goal to leave as small of a carbon footprint as possible. The panels turn sunlight into electricity. All day – from dawn to dusk, as long as the sun is shining, the panels make electricity.
Fisher’s Tudor House has a deep commitment to the environment. We generate between 60 and 100% of our own electricity from the sun. We conserve electricity aggressively. We do not air-condition or heat empty rooms. As each piece of equipment is upgraded we purchase the most energy-efficient model available.
We use fluorescent lights and compact fluorescents where ever possible.. We replaced all of our old fluorescent T12 lighting with energy-efficient T5 bulbs with electronic Ballasts. This provides more light while it saves substantial amounts of energy. Additionally, T5 bulbs use a fraction of the mercury that the old bulbs used. Unnecessary fixtures were removed entirely. The Parking garage lighting has been converted to all CFL (compact fluorescent lighting). These two steps alone save over 56,000 kilowatt hours of Electricity per year.
We conserve natural gas, water and we recycle tons of glass, plastic, cardboard, cans, and cooking oil each year. We Green and Solar powered because we wanted to make a difference.
Producing electricity with Solar power creates an offset of Carbon Dioxide (Greenhouse gas). To date, more than 625 tons
Which is equivalent to eliminating greenhouse gas emissions from:
- an average passenger vehicle driven 1,641,788 miles
- 145 cars driven for one year
- 740,656 pounds of coal burned
- CO2 emissions from 77,591 gallons of gasoline consumed
- CO2 emissions from the electricity used in 94.8 homes for one year
- 1604 Barrels of oil consumed.
