Panasonic Wows at CES 2011

Thursday, January 6th, 2011

If you just happen to have a love for plasma TVs and say, ohh, about $150k you want to spend, Panasonic has got one for you.  At CES 2011 they showed off their new product; a 152 inch Plasma TV.  Located right in the middle in the image below…

With the tablet market booming, Panasonic has one to call their own.  The Panasonic Viera Tablet runs on Android and comes in two sizes: a 7 inch or a 10 inch model.  An interesting feature it has, is its compatibility with HDTVs.  This tablet will be able to transfer information both to and from your television.  The tablet can also double as a remote for controlling your home theater system. Not to mention check your e-mail, watch internet TV, receive sports, news and stock updates, become an e-reader, surf the net…etc.

In the same area, our very own Mike Abt sat down with Panasonic and spoke to the audience about our eco friendly practices.  To learn more about us going green check out our Green program initiatives.

NBC Chicago is Green With Abt

Monday, November 22nd, 2010

Abt’s ongoing green efforts are showcased on NBC Chicago’s article, “Is It Possible to Live Off the Electrical Grid?”.   If you are a frequent visitor to our blog, you are well aware of our efforts to make this world a little greener. Most recently we installed a Windspire in the front of our store.

Every day our 350,000 plus square foot complex is powered from the hours of 9 am- 6 pm by two engines that run on natural gas. “If you were producing more power than you were using, your meter would actually spin backwards,” says Bob Taylor, our Director of Operations. Adding energy “back into the grid” is what happens when the system generates so much power.

If you are from the Chicagoland area and are  interested at all in adding solar panels to your business or home, or even adding a Windspire to create your own energy, give us a call at 847-967-8830 . For full information on our efforts visit our Going Green page.
