Ampronix Makes the Move toward Renewable Energy
Orange County, CA - December 30th 2016 - Located in Irvine, California, we wish to do our part to not only preserve the environment, but to allow it to flourish. For our customers and neighbors, Ampronix has made the choice to #gogreen with the installation of Solar photovoltaic technology in an effort to reduce our impact as an organization!
The consumption of non-renewable resources for energy creates diverse negative effects within the environment. The burning of fossil fuels and biofuels to generate power, in particular, releases mass amounts of carbon dioxide and additional air pollution. Meanwhile, actions in mining can lead to deforestation, loss of biodiversity, and erosion. Power plants pose environmental concerns as well, and at plants that produce nuclear power, the possibility of accidents, worst case scenario a meltdown, are alarming. These factors made the resolution and enactment of this sustainability initiative all the more clear.
In just one hour’s time the sun produces more energy than the world could use in a year with a pollution free method of collection. We are based in one of the sunniest parts of the United States, allowing for the installation of solar panels to absorb the sun’s natural light. The installation features approximately 480 monocrystalline silicon solar cells, or panels, that cover 80% of the roof. Made out of the highest grade silicon, monocrystalline solar cells have the highest efficiency rating. This allows us to produce 65 to 70% of our daily electrical needs without the need for exploiting our planet.
The photovoltaic system works by absorbing the photons discharged from the sun into the panel’s surface. The panel is then able to convert the photons into electrons of direct current electricity. Flowing out of the solar panel and into a solar inverter, the energy is then converted from direct current to alternating current that can be used for our electronic devices.
The switch to green energy offsets adverse environmental impact. Just to name a few, our environmental efforts will negate nitrogen oxides, smog and acid rain, by 683 pounds per year, carbon dioxide, the main cause of climate change, by 433,055 pounds per year, and stop in the deforestation of 790 trees planted annually.
We are dedicated to the protection of the environment and encourage our employees to be involved in our green initiative. Ampronix is dedicated to saving life, whether it is through our cutting edge technology, or through our efforts at environmental preservation. We hope to promote further green practices in the future and inspire others to do their part. We only have one planet.
