Carroll County, Md. (February XX, 2012)—Solar Energy World, Maryland’s fastest growing solar energy systems provider, recently completed the installation of a rooftop solar panel system for Carroll County–based Belisimos Italian Restaurant.
Frank Difatta, owner of Belisimos, turned to Solar Energy World late last year to develop an innovative solution that would reduce operating costs and improve the restaurant’s carbon footprint. The company began designing a solar installation plan for Belisimos in December 2011 and construction began in January 2012. In just five days, Solar Energy World completed installation of nearly 3,740 square feet of solar panels on the restaurant’s roof, which will generate enough power to save Difatta $35,000 per year on his energy bills.
“Solar Energy World made it easy for me to ‘go green’ and make more green at the same time,” said Difatta.
Across the country, more and more business owners like Difatta are learning to harness the power of the sun as a way to keep their energy costs down. Solar-panel installations by businesses increased by 69 percent in the first half of 2011 compared to the same period in 2010, according to a recent report from U.S. Solar Market Insight.
Geoff Mirkin, vice president and managing partner of Solar Energy World, attributes his company’s record growth to customers like Difatta who are concerned about their environmental impact and appreciate the exceptional customer service that Solar Energy World brings to the table. Solar Energy World’s installation teams have more than 74 years of combined roofing and electrical experience and are employed directly by the company.
“The Solar Energy World staff offers a higher level of expertise and better value than many of our larger competitors who aren’t always locally based and often subcontract installers,” said Mirkin. “Our employees take pride in their work and are held accountable for every job they do. Customers can rest assured that they will be taken care of every step of the way.”
Based in Elkridge, Md., Solar Energy World, LLC, is one of the area’s leading providers and installers of solar electric systems and solar hot water systems. The company offers homeowners and commercial property owners in Washington, D.C., Maryland and New Jersey a complete turnkey solution to solar power.
“We aren’t the Walmart of solar and we don’t want to be,” said Laureen Peck, Vice President of Marketing for Solar Energy World. “We believe in providing homeowners and business owners alike with quality work coupled with an easy process. In addition to dealing with utilities paperwork and procedures for our customers, all of our installations are done by actual Solar Energy World employees.”
